As previously reported, three males of legal age and one juvenile male were caught after they forced entry to Sunset Elementary School and damaged the interior. We now have more details to report both about the males involved and the damage they caused.

Friday night, August 24th around 9pm a security officer responded to an alarm at the Sunset Elementary School. Once there he heard people inside and saw that there was damage to the school.  Shoreline Police and a King County K-9 Unit arrived. They searched the inside and the K-9 found three of the suspects inside a janitor's room and one of the suspects was found hiding in the attic.

Three of the suspects were adults- a 23 year old man from Edmonds, and two 18 year old men from Shoreline. The fourth was a 16 year old juvenile from Shoreline.  

The adults were booked into the KCJ for Investigation of Burglary and Malicious Mischief. Youth Services declined booking of the juvenile. He was released to a grandparent and the case will be submitted to Juvenile Prosecutors Office for the filing of charges.

The following is damage noted by deputies on the scene.

  • Broken two-pane wire center windows: 18
  • Broken one-pane windows: 4
