LEE'S SUMMIT, MO (KCTV) -

Police arrested three teens after a school was burglarized and some unusual items taken.

Just before 2 a.m. Tuesday, Lee's Summit police responded to a business alarm at Westview Elementary School, located on Northwest Ward Road, just off of Northwest Blue Parkway.

Officers found a door to the school open and saw three suspects running from the school. After a short chase, police first took 17-year-old Jonathan Wood into custody and an officer's K-9 partner later found 18-year-olds Thomas Petrucci and Ryan McCarthy.

Court documents said that police and a school employee entered the school through the same door that the three teens exited and found that it led directly to the school's cafeteria. Officers found a cash register pried open along with a refrigerator that contained cartons of milk.

Court documents also said that other officers patrolling the area found McCarthy's pickup truck nearby that had rolling papers, latex-type gloves, snacks, snack wrappers, spiral notebooks and assorted clothing.

A man who said he lived with Wood, Petrucci and McCarthy told police he heard the three talking about robbing schools and had found a large number of chocolate milk cartons in their home's refrigerator.

While being interviewed by police, Petrucci told them he and the other teens took a crate full of milk and various packages of snacks from Lee's Summit Elementary School prior to breaking into Westview Elementary. They brought the food items to their home before leaving again and heading to Westview.

All three suspects were charged in Jackson County Court with second-degree burglary and are awaiting trial.
