Two girls acted as lookouts while three boys climbed on the roof of Grant Elementary School, at 1018 N. Prospect St., and entered the building through an unlocked access plate, a Tacoma police spokesperson told KOMO News.
The boys took some pencils, erasers and notebooks. No damage or vandalism was done to the school.
All five boys and girls involved were ages 16 and 17.
It was not immediately clear how police were tipped off to the break-in.
