Crofton boy, 15, charged in school burglary

A 15-year-old Crofton boy has been charged with burglary and released to his mother in connection with recent burglaries and vandalism at Crofton Meadows Elementary School.

Complaints from officials of the school at 2020 Tilghman Drive had led the Western District Tactical Patrol Unit to set up surveillance there. Friday, Officer Brian Smith saw several juveniles on the property acting suspiciously, and when he approached them, they ran away, he reported.

Smith caught one boy, who admitted that he and two friends had broken into a vacant portable classroom on July 21. Charges against the two other youths are pending, police said.

On July 27, the interior of a classroom was spray-painted with graffiti, police said.
