Police probe school break-ins

POSTED April 13, 2018 8:47 p.m.

Three Turlock schools were broken into and vandalized by two unknown suspects early Monday morning.

The first burglary happened at 3:15 a.m. Monday at Pitman High School at 2525 W. Christoffersen Parkway. Several windows were smashed, which set off the alarm. Turlock Unified School District spokesperson Marie Russell said a few personal items were stolen.

Around 3:30 a.m. the alarm at Turlock High School was set off when a glass door into the cafeteria was broken. Video surveillance showed two subjects break the door. Several more windows were smashed and a vending machine also was vandalized. Russell said a computer and monitor were stolen from the school.

The final break-in was reported just after 4 a.m. when the alarm at Dutcher Middle School was activated. A classroom window was smashed and the subjects discharged a fire extinguisher in the science lab.

There were no descriptions available on the suspects.

“We would appreciate if anyone with information about these recent break-ins please contact the Turlock Police Department,” Russell said.

Anyone with information about the incidents can call the Turlock Police Department tipline at 668-5550 ext. 6780 or at
