Two ju­ve­niles in DeKalb County, Ala., were ar­rested this week af­ter in­ci­dents at two schools, a news re­lease from the DeKalb County Sher­iff’s Of­fice states.

A school re­source of­fi­cer called Mon­day to a pos­si­ble bur­glary at Fyffe School found a win­dow bro­ken and class­rooms van­dal­ized, a news re­lease states.

Se­cu­rity cam­eras at the school cap­tured images of a ju­ve­nile who was ar­rested Tues­day and re­ferred to the Ju­ve­nile Pro­ba­tion Of­fice, au­thor­i­ties said.

Also on Mon­day, a ju­ve­nile brought a BB pis­tol to a class­room at Crossville Mid­dle School. The prin­ci­pal and school re­source of­fi­cer were con­tacted and the ju­ve­nile was de­tained be­fore trans­fer to the Coosa Val­ley De­ten­tion Cen­ter.

“We take these kinds of in­ci­dents very se­ri­ously, es­pe­cially with what is hap­pen­ing in schools and places around the world,” Chief Deputy Michael Ed­mond­son said. “Our chil­dren are pre­cious and we do ev­ery­thing that we can to pro­tect them.”
