    Surveillance Video
    Three men caused hundreds of dollars in damage to the school, police said.

    Thanks, in part, to video posted on social media sites, police say they captured two of the three young men who authorities say were caught on surveillance camera vandalizing a Camden County high school earlier this month.

    On July 5 around 12:40 a.m., three men with T-shirts covering their heads tore up trees, shattered a marquis and tried to use a trash can to smash the front doors of Timber Creek High School on Jarvis Road in Sicklerville, according to Gloucester Township Police.

    Gloucester Township Police posted surveillance video from the scene to the department’s YouTube and Facebook pages Tuesday in hopes that people would recognize the men who caused about $350 in damage to school property.

    In the video you see the men approach the school and attempt to throw trash cans through the front doors -- causing one of the glass panes to shatter -- then run off as one takes his shirt and puts it back on.

    Police got their break Thursday when they arrested Justin Maze. The 20-year-old Marlton man was charged with fourth degree criminal trespass on school grounds and criminal mischief and released.

    They told NBC10 that the video helped lead them to Maze.

    On Friday, a second suspect, Michael Thompson of Erial turned himself into police. The 20-year-old was also charged with criminal mischief and released.

    The third suspect -- the man in the video wearing a black T-shirt and black hat -- remains on the loose. If anyone recognizes him they should call GTPD at 856-228-4500 or leave an anonymous tip at 856-842-5560 or send an e-mail to police@gtpolice.com.
