Four juveniles who attend the Huron School District were arrested June 21 after they were caught breaking into Miller Elementary School, 18955 Hannan Road, in New Boston.
According to Police Chief Everette Robbins, a call came into dispatch at around midnight saying that a security alarm was going off in the school’s computer room.
When police arrived on scene and searched the school, four juveniles were found attempting to steal computers and other electronic equipment.
Two males were immediately placed under arrest, and two females were arrested a few hours later after they fled the school on foot. The females who fled were arrested at their homes, Robbins said.
One student lives in Huron Township, two in Sumpter Township, and the other in Romulus.
Robbins said his officers arrived at the school within two minutes of being notified of the break-in.
“The quick response and diligence of our patrol and command staff resulted in preventing the loss of valuable and expensive educational aids for our students. This is another example of the need for parents to know where their kids are at night.”
