Four teenagers who were caught early Saturday morning inside East High caused $2,500 worth of damage and attempting to flee with “thousands of dollars” worth of items, Wichita police said.
At 12:40 a.m., a Wichita school district security officer called 911 after East’s alarm went off multiple times. The security officer also reported hearing loud banging inside the school, Sgt. Bart Brunscheen said.
Police responded and found three boys and one girl, ranging in age from 14 to 17, inside the building. They were carrying “thousands of dollars” worth of items in several bags, Brunscheen said. He didn’t know what the items were.
The four were arrested and booked into the Juvenile Intake and Assessment Center.
