Police arrest four for break-in at Sunset School

Saturday, August 25, 2012

Neighbors in the Sunset hill, Boeing Creek area of southwest Shoreline were treated to circling helicopters and streets full of police cars last Friday night / Saturday morning.

Neighbors who called 911 were told to stay inside and lock the doors.

When it was over, Shoreline police had arrested four males, three 18 year olds and one juvenile, and booked the three adults into King County Jail for investigation of burglary and malicious mischief. The juvenile was released to his grandmother and will be charged via investigation into Juvenile Court.

Three were from Shoreline and one was from Edmonds.

They had apparently broken into the unused Sunset Elementary School and damaged the interior of the building.

Names have not been released, pending the filing of charges by the prosecutor's office.

The school has been unused for several years. Current plans call for the building to be demolished and the site to be used as a public park under an agreement between the City of Shoreline and the Shoreline School District. The District would continue to own the land but the City would have the use until such time as the School District needed it. Similar arrangements are in place for the Paramount School Park.

One way to keep young kids out of trouble is to build a community center at the ols Sunset site. My son LOVES the tween night held at our current community center. Build another one and kids will come to play basketball, talk, etc.
