Police in Farmington are searching for suspects who destroyed a storage shed at an elementary school on Monday morning. 

The police department says two white males, likely in the age range of 16-20, stole a Bobcat and used to cause damage at Farmington Elementary School. 

Police say they have surveillance video of the suspects and that it is being enhanced. They also discovered a white Nike flip flop left at the scene.
