Five teenagers were arrested late Thursday after breaking into a Tacoma school and stealing school supplies, police said.
The teens, ages 16 and 17, climbed onto the roof of Grant Elementary School, 1018 N. Prospect St., and were hanging out when they found an unsecured access door just before 11 p.m.
Three boys went inside an office and took pens, pencils, Post-It notes and erasers while the two girls waited on the roof, police spokesman Mark Fulghum said.
Officers were called to the school by an alarm that sounded when the boys entered the building and by neighbors who heard the ruckus.
The boys were booked into Remann Hall and the girls were released to their parents.
