District police are searching for three young men or teens who broke into McKinley Technology High School
in Northeast Washington’s Eckington neighborhood Saturday and got away with several items, according to authorities.
Surveillance cameras captured the trio walking in through a door about 7 p.m. Police did not say whether the door was locked. The school is located in the 100 block of T Street NE.
All three are seen using a hand to shield their faces from the camera. Moments after they walk in, another man, possibly a witness, also comes into the building holding what appears to be a cellphone.
Another video shows the trio walking down a hallway with white T-shirts covering their heads. At one point, the man who had walked in after them passes them in a hallway. A few minutes later, the video shows the three walking down a hall and toward the entrance carrying heavy bags. D.C. police did not say what was taken.
At the entrance, the men stop and take the T-shirts off their heads and put them on before leaving the school.
McKinley Tech is a science and math magnet school that is among the District’s highest achieving schools. Students must apply for admission.
