Brenham Boys Given Juvenile Detention for Destroying School Property

By  | 

Four Brenham boys have turned themselves in for breaking into a local school, and causing thousands of dollars worth of damage.

Police say the juveniles, who are between the ages of 10 and 13, broke into Alton Elementary School this past weekend and left behind about $18,000 worth of damage.

School officials found emptied fire extinguishers throughout the building, smashed windows and overturned furniture.

The boys turned themselves in earlier this week and were sentenced to two days in the Hays County Juvenile Detention Center in San Marcos.

Another hearing was scheduled for Thursday to see if detention should be extended. No word yet on what was decided.
