suspects transported to the Juvenile Detention Center
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – On Saturday, members of our Brevard County Sheriff’s Office West Precinct Team arrested three juveniles as they were in the process of burglarizing Fairglen Elementary School.
The arrests were subsequent to Deputies responding to the school after the on-site Property Manager notified our agency that several suspects had been observed inside the school.
The juvenile suspects, age 14, 15, and 16 were located and detained by responding Deputies who discovered that the suspects were in possession of multiple items that had been stolen from the school.
The items that had been stolen included laptop computers and other items of value belonging to Brevard Public Schools. Additionally, while inside the school the subjects ransacked offices and spray painted walls within the school.
As a result of the investigation all three suspects were transported to the Juvenile Detention Center with charges for Burglary, Grand Theft and Criminal Mischief. Each of the subjects had prior criminal histories for criminal behavior.
Please join me in thanking the School’s Property Manager for seeing something and saying something as well as our West Precinct Deputies and General Crimes Unit for their outstanding efforts!
