LA MESA (CNS) - An 18-year-old man and a juvenile were arrested at a La Mesa elementary school early Thursday after they were caught stealing computer equipment, police said.
Officers went to Vista La Mesa Academy at 3900 Violet Street shortly before 2:30 a.m. in response to a burglary alarm, according to La Mesa police.

Both suspects were taken into custody as they jumped a fence at the south end of the school grounds, police said. The statement identified the 18-year-old as Victor Dontigny of La Mesa and said the juvenile, whose name was withheld, is 16.
