Police arrest teenagers in school break in

Police arrested two 15-year-old teenagers in connection with breaking into a school in Paphos over the weekend.

The arrests followed that of another boy, 16, who was detained on Sunday evening after he was found on the roof of the school building.

According to police, the school’s alarm sounded at 4pm and officers found a door had been broken into but nothing was stolen.

The alarm went off again at 8pm and responding officers found that the aluminium door of the cleaners’ room had been forced open.

They also saw that there had been an attempt to open some of the classrooms and a bunch of keys was missing.

The 16-year-old teenager reportedly admitted breaking into the cleaners’ room and attempting to steal from the school’s canteen.

The keys were later found in the school’s yard.
