Five boys were arrested after deputies say they broke into a business and took a forklift for a joyride (KTRK)

Five boys in Tamarac, Florida, are facing charges after allegedly trespassing at a middle school on Sunday, breaking into an adjoining business and going on a forklift ride, WPLG reports.

Surveillance video from the business showed three of the boys, who were using their T-shirts to conceal their faces, climb into a forklift and do doughnuts around the property.

Deputies said they also used plastic bags as a makeshift glove so they wouldn't leave any fingerprints behind. Authorities say the boys took two fire extinguishers and discharged them, leaving them in the woods near the business.

An alarm at the business tipped off authorities who rushed to the scene and quickly found the boys.

Four of the boys face charges of burglary, grand theft of a fire extinguisher and resisting without violence.

One of the boys was arrested on a charge of misdemeanor trespassing and was issued a civil citation.

The ages and identities of the suspects have not been released.
