Girls Charged With Breaking Into School

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (AP) — Two girls have been arrested for breaking into a southwest Florida elementary school.

Charlotte County Sheriff’s detectives arrested two girls, ages 11 and 13, for burglary and petty theft Friday, alleging the girls broke into the school, hid in the bathroom until everyone left and spent the night at Neil Armstrong Elementary School.

Authorities said one of the girls used Facebook to give false information about where they were, sending authorities all over town when they disappeared last month. Deputies said they girls made prank calls to six teachers from school phones and surfed the Internet on school computers.

One of the girl’s fathers got a tip about where they were and picked them up the next day.

The Associated Press is not naming the girls because they are minors.
