County police arrested a 14-year-old boy Sunday on charges that he broke into George Fox Middle School, county police said.

The Pasadena youth was charged with breaking and entering and giving a false statement to police. He was released to his parents' custody.

Police went to the school in the 7900 block of Outing Ave. after an alarm sounded shortly before 4 p.m.

Cpl. Neil L. Benson checked the building and saw a youngster with a screwdriver trying to escape through a door on the north side.

Corporal Benson arrested the teen-ager, who told the officer he was alone and broke into the school to get a book bag that he left there.

Another officer picked up the youth and took him to Eastern District police station, where he told the other officer that he had an accomplice.
