Four teenage boys were arrested this week after they allegedly entered a Great Mills High School band room and stole electronics and other personal belongings, according to the sheriff’s office.

A faculty member at Great Mills High on Monday reported a burglary and theft to deputy Kristi Nelson, school resource officer.

A sheriff’s office press release said the four suspects entered the band room on Saturday, Oct. 12 at about 5:19 p.m. and were seen leaving the room a short time later. The teens were captured on video surveillance entering the school and checking doors inside the school, the sheriff’s office said.

Members of the band returned to the room from an event at the school to find personal belongings missing, including cell phones, iPods, calculators, money and credit cards.

Two 13-year-old Great Mills residents, a 14-year-old boy of Lexington Park and a 16-year-old boy of Lexington Park were charged Tuesday with second-degree burglary, fourth-degree burglary, theft valued at $1,000 to $10,000 and theft less than $1,000. Two of the juveniles were remanded to custody and two were released to the custody of a parent.
