Camera catches Westover burglary

Two Albany teens were caught on tape breaking into Westover High School early Monday morning and stealing cash.

Dougherty County School Police say surveillance video shows 13 and 14-year-old classmates from Merry Acres Middle School rummaging through the office drawers about 4:00 AM.

They stole $61, some teacher ID badges, and other items. As they were walking home with their loot, an off-duty Dougherty County Sheriff's Deputy saw the boys and stopped them.

"Of course, that time of the morning he thought it was suspicious. Using his police instincts, he went and made contact with them. And sure enough they did have quite a bit of stolen property on their person," said Dougherty County School Police Asst. Chief J. C. Phillips. 

Investigators say the two teens were spending the night together. They said they were bored and decided to sneak out of the house.

They were charged with burglary and released to their parents. School officials say there was little damage done to the school.
