The Juvenile Court petitions say the boys used fireworks to create explosive devices which they threw through the windows of the Wat Lao Buddhapathip (waht low boo-dah-pah-TEEP') Temple on the Fourth of July.

They're cited with possession of a prohibited weapon and felony vandalism.

Police Chief Ronal Serpas (sur-PASS') called it a senseless act and says the department treats it seriously.
