Three suspects broke in Englewood High School Jan. 12, 2014 and vandalized the school's new building.

ARAPAHOE COUNTY, Colo. — Three  men accused of causing hundreds of thousands of dollars damage to Englewood High School went before a judge for the first time Tuesday.

Anthony Meany, Michael Trickel and Chad Delgadillo are accused of vandalizing the school early on a Sunday morning. They face charges of burglary, arson and criminal mischief.

“I just want everybody to know that my son’s not like this it’s not him,” Michael Trickel’s mother Lisa says. She believes he got “duped” into the break-in by Anthony Meany.

“He doesn’t remember a thing he doesn’t remember being there he doesn’t remember doing anything the only thing he knows is that Meany and the other kid came and told him about it the next day,” she says.

Investigators say the three were caught on surveillance camera video inside the school.

Police say they damaged $450,000 worth of property at the school, destroying math and science equipment along with some musical instruments.

    Insanity plea or to drunk or drugged to remember? Blame it on your partners in crime works. Maybe the videos he sees in court will jog his memory.

    Mom says “Meany and the other kid”. Kids are usually defined as minors under the age of 18, not in your late 20’s. Funny how it’s never my kid that would do such a thing.

    These losers have attacked every Englewood School District taxpayer and should be held accountable, and if Mom thinks they are “kids’, I am sure these families will step-up and be responsible for the financial damage, including EHS and the middle school students missing a day of class.

    Thank you Chipotle for you fundraiser last Friday for the losses of the EHS marching band.
