WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah – Two teens are facing charges after allegedly breaking into Valley Junior High over the weekend.

West Valley City police said the teens set off an alarm at about 4:30 p.m. Sunday.

Officers said the teens ran out when police arrived.

Police arrested the teens after a short chase when they gave up and dropped to the ground.

“After a brief conversation with them, sounds like it was a boring Sunday and they didn’t have anything better to do so this is where they ended up,” West Valley City Police Sgt. Paul Gill said. “Hopefully it will be a good lesson for them.”

Officials said no significant property was stolen.

So far, the teens are facing trespassing charges.
