11-year-old boy destroys $36G of Pennsylvania school computers by urinating on them

An 11-year-old boy was facing charges of criminal mischief after he destroyed $36,000 of computers by urinating on them at a Pennsylvania school.

Teachers discovered the 30 damaged MacBook computers on a cart in a corridor at Upper Allen Elementary School in Mechanicsburg, police said.

The equipment was damaged beyond repair and will cost more than $36,000 to replace.

Staff at the school identified the boy last week, and he faces charges of institutional vandalism and criminal mischief.

His case was forwarded to the Cumberland County Juvenile Probation Department.
