Police seek burglars who ransacked local school

Posted: Updated:
LONGVIEW, WA (KPTV) -

Longview police are trying to locate a group of people who broke into a local school. The burglary happened Wednesday morning at Kessler Elementary School.

Officers arrived to find six people running out of the school in different directions, investigators said. It's unclear how many people were actually inside the school.

Police found a broken window and items from inside the school outside the building, they said. People who live in the area say this burglary is part of a bigger problem.

"I think it's awful," Michelle Dantzler said. "And I think that parents aren't parenting enough, and there aren't enough places for kids in Longview. There's not enough things to keep them occupied."

Police arrested one person, Jose Luiz Lopez, in connection to the burglary. They're looking for any information that will lead them to the other suspects.
