Teens Caught Breaking Into Lexington High School

LEX 18

Two teenagers got caught breaking into Lafayette High School. Police say the pair was spotted on the school security footage walking through the halls around 2:00 this morning.

The company that runs the alarm system called police and while they were on the way, the alarm was set off on a hatch door to the school’s roof. Officers set up a perimeter and even used search dogs for over an hour to find the teens hiding on the roof. Nothing was stolen or damaged, but the 17-year old boy and girl said they scaled the building to get inside. They were cited for trespassing and released to their parents.
