Third teen is arrested in school break-in
The final suspect in the March 14 break-in at River Ridge high and middle schools has been arrested. According to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, he is 17 and a junior at River Ridge High School in New Port Richey. The Times is withholding his name because of his age. Many items were stolen during the burglary, including computers, cameras and cell phones. Most have been recovered. The other two suspects — also 17-year-old juniors at River Ridge — were arrested Tuesday. The third teenager, who lives in Land O'Lakes, is in juvenile custody and is charged with armed burglary, wearing a mask while committing an offense and trespassing on school property with a weapon.
