Harriman police arrested two people last Wednesday for breaking into Bowers Elementary School. The incident happened around 3 a.m.
Jacob Scott Logue and Charles Kenneth Lawson are each charged with burglary, evading arrest and vandalism.
Additional classrooms are being added at Bowers. The police report said a cinderblock from the construction work was used to bust a window to a classroom.
Several muddy footprints were found inside the classroom, and the drawers to the teacher’s desk had been rummaged through as well, according to the report.  
An alarm alerted police. The report said an officer saw two subjects running from the side of the school.
“Both subjects were found a short distance away and detained,” the report said. “Upon a check of Mr. Logue, he was found to have a digital camera and several candy items on his person.”
The camera belonged to a teacher, and contained pictures of a recent field trip.  
Logue, 19, and Lawson, 19, are scheduled to appear in court in June.
Sheriff’s office records show that Logue was arrested less than a week before the Bowers incident for failure to appear.
