Decatur Police apprehended three juveniles at West Decatur Elementary School overnight.

Decatur police arrested three juveniles who broke into West Decatur Elementary School on Monday night, Decatur City Schools Supervisor of Safety Dwight Satterfield said.

The juveniles - two fifth-graders and a sixth-grader - were caught as they exited the building, Satterfield said.

He said the juveniles were still in the school when authorities arrived at the school at about 8:30 p.m.

“We’ve had a number of break-ins at the school over the past couple of weeks and changed security procedures,” Satterfield said.

He said the fifth-graders were West Decatur Elementary students. Satterfield said he is meeting with parents this morning and it wasn’t immediately clear where the sixth grader attended school.
