Take-out pizza sends three Seattle burglars to jail

The wrong kind of take-out pizza has landed three young men in jail.

Around 3:45 a.m., an alarm was tripped inside Alki Elementary School, 3000 block of 59th Ave. S.W. A school security guard arrived to find the back door to the school’s kitchen propped open, police said.

At first, the security guard thought a custodian might have accidentally set of the alarm, and went to check inside the school. But after he discovered all the lights were off inside the building, he walked back outside and waited for police.

A short time later, three men – ages 18, 19, and 20 – walked out of the school carrying a frozen pizza, according to police.

The school security guard held the three until police arrived and took them into custody.

The pizza was taken from the kitchen freezer. It was unclear how they planned to warm it up.
