Two people were arrested at Sammamish High School early Monday after Bellevue Police say they were caught during a break-in.
Bellevue Police Department spokeswoman Officer Carla Iafrate said that patrol officers responded to an alarm at Sammamish High School at 4:40 a.m. Monday, which was the Martin Luther King, Jr., school holiday.
Patrol officers set up a perimeter at the high school, and found a man and a woman who were hiding under a desk in the AV room, Iafrate said.
According to police, the man and the woman, who said that she had attended Sammamish High School over a decade ago, were carrying electronics that belonged to the high school, including a camera and a laptop.
They both confessed to breaking into the building, Iafrate said. The man also had a warrant out of Bellevue, and the woman had a warrant out of Everett, she said.
Information was not immediately available as to whether the man and the woman have been charged in the case, but they face charges of second-degree burglary.
"It was a good job by patrol," Iafrate said.
