Nassau County police on Monday identified the suspects as Courtney Erin Kelly, James Slattery and Alexander Maher. They're all 17 and from Levittown. Two juveniles, ages 14 and 15, also were arrested but their names were not released.

Kelly was charged with criminal mischief. Slattery, Maher and the two other teens were charged with criminal tampering.
