Teen arrested in series of school break-ins

Posted: Monday, April 26, 2010

ANCHORAGE - A 17-year-old boy has been arrested in connection with a string of nighttime break-ins at Anchorage schools.

Anchorage police say the teen, who was not named because of his age, was booked into McLaughlin Youth Center Friday.

Nearly 40 computers and other equipment were stolen in five burglaries at elementary and high schools across Anchorage starting April 14.

Detectives recovered evidence from the burglaries while serving three search warrants. They also think others were involved in the computer thefts.
