Teens accused of burglarizing school

Two Hernando teens have been accused of breaking into Explorer K-8 School and stealing a handful of items after the school's surveillance system caught them on tape. Christopher Pettit, 18, and a 16-year-old, both of Spring Hill, were arrested May 25 in connection with the May 21 thefts, according to a Hernando County Sheriff's Office report. The 16-year-old is not being identified because of his age. The pair entered the school on Northcliffe Boulevard through an unlocked door and stole a cellphone, a pair of sneakers and $300 in cash from various classrooms, the report states. The two admitted to the thefts and were arrested on burglary charges after being told they were captured on the surveillance tapes, the report states.
