ALBANY, GA (WALB) -Four Westover High Students were caught red handed breaking into apartments next to their school Tuesday afternoon.

Police say they were looking for a hideout to skip school.

A neighbor spotted a removed screen and broken window at a unit in the 400 block of Kingswood Drive and called Police.

When the Cops arrived, two students ran into nearby woods then back to school.

They were quickly caught because the school had been locked down.

The other two suspects were hiding in a second apartment and ran when Police checked it.

One student was caught hiding in some bushes and the other in a Dentist's office.

Albany Police Detective Darryl Jones said "We have had a lot of involvement by the community pitching in to help. Calling in. That's been able to help us a lot in catching these burglars."

Police say the students did not steal anything.

Two of them were released without charges.

17-year old Cartavis McCray and a 15-year old were charged with two counts of criminal trespass.

Dougherty County School officials say the students will have to face a tribunal hearing.
