COCOA, Fla. (FOX 35 WOFL) - Two teenagers are facing felony charges after their parents turned them in Monday afternoon for a burglary at Cambridge Elementary School in Cocoa, authorities say. The parents saw photos of the suspects on the news and called police.
Early Monday, Cocoa police officers responded to the school after an employee called to report the burglary, which is believed to have happened on Saturday. Officials say most every classroom had been ransacked, property damaged and several iPads taken.
A review of the surveillance video revealed two suspects on campus Saturday afternoon. By mid-afternoon, the parents of the suspects in the video were at the police department to surrender the teens.
The teens, ages 14 and 17, are charged with multiple felonies. Both are facing charges of burglary, grand theft (4 counts) and felony criminal mischief. They have been released to their parents with a notice to appear in court at a later date.
