Teen caught after break-in at old Austintown school

AUSTINTOWN — A township teen was caught taking an Apple computer tower from the old Austintown Middle School.

Police arrived at the former middle school on Mahoning Avenue around 2:30 p.m. Monday to find a 15-year-old male behind the old football stadium with the equipment in his possession.

The suspect told police he had entered the building by removing screws to a door on the North side of the school.

The boy was released to his mother, and advised that a breaking and entering charge could be filed once the Mahoning County Juvenile Justice Center reviews the case.
