Four teens break into school; steal iPads, cameras

BROOKLYN CENTER, Minn. (KMSP) -

Respect is part of the mission statement of Northport Elementary in Brooklyn Center. But Principal Leona Berden says respect was the last thing on the minds of four teenagers who broke into the school.

“So far summer vacation has not started off well,” said Berden. “On surveillance video, we noticed that there were four kids, it was a female and three boys.”

They entered through a door that was not completely closed by construction workers and went on to steal iPads, digital cameras, and school supplies.

“This is a substantial crime,” said Tim Gannon, Commander, Brooklyn Center Police. “This is a felony level crime.”

To make matters worse, Principal Derden says two of the four teenage suspects on the surveillance video are Northport Elementary graduates making the crime more personal and painful.

“To come in and violate a place where you spent many years learning, it makes you feel very, very sad,” said Derden.

Police are looking for the four teenagers involved in this burglary. Nothing inside the school was destroyed but teachers are wondering if or when those expensive items like the iPads will be replaced.
