4 teens arrested for breaking into, vandalizing Viewlands Elementary

SeattleCrime.com reports that four teens were arrested last week for breaking into a portable classroom at Viewlands Elementary at Third Avenue Northwest and North 105th Street.

A police report says a witness saw a group of kids hanging around one of the portables, and heard a loud bang come from inside.
Officers found the four teens at the scene, who admitted they’d been inside the portable—which they claimed was unlocked—but had only gone inside to get out of the rain.
Of course, when police checked the portable they found the door had been pried open and “there was fresh red and green paint on the walls,” which just so happened to match the shade of paint drying on one of the teens’ hands.
Officers noticed a “slight odor of intoxicants” on the teens and recovered a “partially consumed bottle of ‘Remy Martin’ champagne” from one of their backpacks.
