SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Springfield Police say they arrested one of four people who broke into the White Street School overnight and attempted to steal a flat screen TV and computers.
Springfield Police Sgt. John Delaney told 22News two men and two women broke into the school just after 2:00 Tuesday morning. He said officers were alerted about the break-in by a security alarm and got to the school in time to see four individuals trying to leave the school through a side door carrying a flat screen TV and computers.
Sgt. Delaney said all four of the suspects ran but officers were able to catch Jacqueline Ramirez, 21, of Salem Street in Springfield. The three other suspects were able to get away.
Ramirez was charged with breaking and entering during nighttime, larceny over $250 and possession of burglarious instruments. Sgt. Delaney said Ramirez was carrying a red folding knife that was used to take the stripping off the door window. That enabled the alleged thieves to pry out the window.
Sgt. Delaney said the thieves left other computer towers and screens right inside the door of the school so they could take them out of the building.
Police are still searching for the other woman and two men involved in the break-in. If you have any information, contact the Springfield Police Detective Bureau at 413-787-6355.
