Police in the northern Minnesota community of Red Lake are asking for help finding the kids who broke into and vandalized a number of local schools. 

According to a Facebook post from the Red Lake Police Department, the perpetrators are "11 years old and younger." And while most have been identified, the department has shared surveillance photos in the hopes the public can help track down the rest:

The images show a group of kids wearing shirts for masks and generally running amok in the halls and bus garages of area schools. 

It's not clear how many schools were targeted, and police didn't specify the exact nature of the damage left by the children. 

As for what kind of punishment may be in store, it seems the parents will bear the brunt of it, with police warning they'll be "held responsible for the property damage" and required to pay restitution. 

Anyone with information on the break-ins is urged to contact Red Lake police at 218-679-3313.
