Police: Calhoun Students Broke into High School

Alarm was triggered Sunday night, and cops responded shortly thereafter.

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.

Turns out they found the door unlocked and wandered in the school. Not exactly a break in. They found some keys and didn't know what to do with them. Then they got scared when they saw the police thinking they were now in trouble. They did not have bad intentions. It would be great if the Patch, Newsday and News 12 could get the story correct before ruining two good kids records.

@Derek- What's next? Are you going to tell us what really happened was they lost their dog in the school and found her hiding in the drawers of the teacher's desk? Ha! I understand one of these lowlifes lives in the "gables" area, but no need to make up bs to defend them. They are both losers
