(State College) -- Police have been trying to identify men who caused more than $5,000 damage to a Penn State fraternity house that's been closed since its national leaders say the chapter wasn't following standards of conduct earlier this month. 

The damage occurred at the Pi Kappa Phi mansion between March 15 and April 9.

The fraternity brothers were evicted on April 8 after the national fraternity found the group violated penalties imposed over hazing, alcohol use and other behavior.

The chapter can't return for at least three years. 

State College police are hoping surveillance video at the house will help them identify some of the vandals.

It's not clear whether the suspects lived in the house or were just visiting when the vandalism occurred.
