LANCASTER – Sheriff’s deputies are looking for two juvenile boys suspected of breaking into a Lancaster elementary school and surprising a teacher who was preparing for class, a sheriff’s lieutenant said.
It happened around 3:15 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 8, at Desert View School, located at 1555 West Avenue H-10 in Lancaster, according to Lt. Derrick Alfred of the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station.
“[The teacher] entered a supply room and found two suspects inside,” Alfred said. “They immediately asked her not to report them and fled.”
Deputies found evidence at the scene, the lieutenant said, but did not elaborate.
A deputy could be seen checking the roof of the school Sunday afternoon and retrieving a black backpack. A deputy at scene could also be seen recovering several items that were scattered on the roof.
The burglary suspects were described as a white male and a Hispanic male believed to be between the ages of 14 and 18, a source at the scene said.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to contact the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station at 661-948-8466.
