Three Juveniles Arrested After School in Rosamond Vandalized

Wed, 22 Jan 2020 11:38:41 CST

Three male juveniles have been arrested in connection with a break-in and vandalism of Faith Bible Christian Academy in Rosamond.

Christian County Sheriff's Deputies responded at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 19, to a reported break-in at the school on Mary Street. When deputies arrived, they found damage inside the facility, including the security system, computers, trophy cases and a school-owned van.

Investigators say the suspects also gained access to a locked office by destroying a door. A classroom window had been destroyed as well. Items such as candy, sports drinks and an undetermined amount of money had been stolen. The school van was also stolen, but was later returned by the suspects.

Video footage obtained by the Sheriff's Office showed three male suspects inside the building at approximately 12:40 a.m. on Sunday. The ensuing investigation led to the arrest of the three juveniles, who all admitted to taking part in the incident. Christian County Sheriff Bruce Kettelkamp said Some of the stolen property was recovered in their possession.

Two of the three subjects were enrolled as students at the school. All three are facing multiple felony charges, and were detained in a juvenile detention facility pending their first court appearance before a Christian County Judge.
