Teenagers taken into custody after break-in
Two Lansing boys were taken into custody during the weekend after they allegedly broke into Lansing Intermediate School, Lansing Police Chief Steve Wayman said.
Wayman said a Lansing police officer was conducting a routine building check at the school, 300 Olive St., at about 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 3, when he observed two individuals walking in a hallway.
Wayman said the officer called for backup and then saw the two boys enter the school gymnasium.
"(The officer) went around the back side of the building where the exit doors are, and the kids came out the doors right where he was at," Wayman said.
The officer took the boys into custody and transported them to the Leavenworth County Juvenile Detention Center. Wayman said the case would be forwarded to the Leavenworth County Attorney's Office to determine if charges would be filed.
Wayman said the boys, 13 and 14, entered the building through a locked door, but he said no damage or vandalism to the building was discovered. Wayman said the boys told authorities this wasn't the first time they'd entered the building.
