Two Merrick teens were arrested Sunday night after they allegedly broke into Calhoun High School, cops said.
According to police, school personnel were notified of an alarm at Calhoun ringing at 9:06 p.m. A 59-year-old man responded to check the security system. He observed a male going through a desk, cops said.
Police were called, and as they arrived, two males were seen fleeing the building on foot. The two, ages 16 and 17, respectively, were apprehended a short time later near the Relyea Drive and Charlson Court intersection. A set of keys from the school was recovered. Both teens attend Calhoun, cops confirmed.
Both teens were charged with third-degree burglary and one was also charged with fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property. Their arraignment is scheduled for Monday at First District Court in Hempstead.
