PALMDALE, Calif. - Two juveniles were arrested early Thursday morning accused of burglarizing an elementary school and stashing their stolen goods in grandma's backyard.
Deputies with the Palmdale Sheriff's Station responded to a burglary alarm call at Summerwind Elementary School around 2 a.m. where they detained two male juveniles attempting to exit the grounds of the school.
Authorities said that the grandmother of one of the suspects lives next to the school and shares a fence line with the school grounds. Investigators believe that the 15 and 17-year-old suspects were making multiple trips to bring the stolen property to grandma's backyard.
The sheriff's station reported that multiple classrooms were burglarized with their windows smashed.
All of the stolen property was recovered from grandma's backyard, which included approximately two dozen iPads and various food items, authorities said.
As police were arresting the two teens, one of them became "uncooperative" and kicked out the patrol car window, according to a sheriff's department press release. Glass shards from the broken glass got into a deputy's eye.
The deputy was transported to a local hospital for medical evaluation and treatment. The current condition of the deputy is unknown.
Both supects were transported to Sylmar Juvenile Hall and face charges of burglary, vandalism, and resisting/battering an officer causing injury.
Their names have not been released because they are minors.
