Teen arrested, another escapes after break-in at Paso Robles school

A 15-year-old boy was arrested and another person escaped capture early Friday morning after police responded to a break-in at Flamson Middle School in Paso Robles.

At about 12:45 a.m., Paso Robles police responded to a burglary alarm at the Flamson Middle School library on the 2400 block of Spring Street, according to a news release from the Police Department.

When officers arrived, they discovered a broken window on one of the building’s doors. While investigating, officers allegedly witnessed two people run from inside the building and flee on foot across Spring Street.

Officers gave chase and found the teen hiding near the railroad tracks at the dead end of 26th Street. Police allegedly found him in possession of items later determined to be stolen from the school, and he was taken into custody without incident and booked into the County Juvenile Services Center on suspicion of one count of burglary.

He is not being identified because he’s a juvenile.

His accomplice was not found.
