SDSO arrested five people in connection to the arson at Meadowbrook Middle School

Five students from Rancho Bernardo High School were arrested Tuesday in connection with arson in Poway, San Diego County Sheriff's Deputies confirmed.

Several fires were set throughout Meadowbrook Middle School on April 11. A custodian called authorities after a poster, trash can and locker were ignited.

San Diego County Crimestoppers had released images of several suspects after the arson was reported.

The suspects' names were not released because of their ages.

SDSO says the case will be submitted to the D.A.’s office this week and a date for a hearing at the Juvenile Court will be set later.

All five juveniles have been released to their parents.
