Two teens accused of vandalizing a high school football field in Pearland turned themselves in Tuesday night, say police.

Anthony Pedro Lowe, 18 and Jorge E. Flores, 18, both from Pearland and attend Pearland High School, were taken into custody on criminal mischief warrants. Police say a tip led them to identify the pair, who police believe damaged the field at 'The Rig' back on May 21.

Police say Lowe and Flores cut large portions of artificial turf from the center of the field and put them in the stands. Repairing the field could cost as much as $50,000, say police.

Bond has been set at $20,000 apiece.

Investigators hope to recreate a timeline of the damage, and are asking anyone who has information about this case to call Pearland police at 281-997-4144.
