Two schools, two days, two police incidents.

On Thursday, June 20, an official at Barrington High School called police after noticing a boy enter the school empty-handed after school-hours and leave a few minutes later carrying a volleyball.

The school official recognized the boy and contacted him; the boy first denied taking the ball, then returned to the school and threw the ball into a trash can near the front entrance of the building. The official wanted police to issue the boy, an 18-year-old, a no trespassing warning.

The next day at about 4:40 a.m., officers responded to the Barrington Middle School after alarms at the school were triggered. Officers found a bicycle near one of the entrances and later located a 16-year-old Barrington boy near the school.

The boy denied entering the school; he said he had been at a friend’s house all night but returned to the school to pick up his bike. Family members said they had no idea the boy was not at home.

Neither teenager was charged.
