Kids caught trying to steal musical instruments

Three young people, ages not available, were arrested early this morning after they were caught inside Eckstein Middle School in Seattle attempting to walk away with some musical instruments, say Seattle police.

Officers responded to an alarm at the school about 1:30 a.m. and saw the three would-be thieves inside holding flashlights and trying to purloin the instruments, according to police spokeswoman Renee Witt.

Realizing the cops were there, the three hopeful bandits dropped the goods and ran out an exit door, but to no avail.

They were caught, fingerprinted, photographed and interviewed, but then handed over to their parents.

Eckstein Middle School is in the 3000 block of Northeast 75th Street in North Seattle.
