Rural school burglarized
Ceres Cop Car

Two men who were suspected of committing the Saturday burglary of Beaver Elementary School were not charged with the crime for lack of evidence, said Ceres Police Department spokesman Lt. Chris Perry.

A burglar alarm went off at 7:47 a.m. at the school on South Central Avenue. Police found a broken out window in the southwest area of the campus and found missing computer towers. A check was made of the area and at 8:08 a.m. police found two males riding away on bikes. One of the suspects had blood on his shirt and a cut on his hand. Police also found burglary tools in their possession and believe they were the ones who broke into the school but found no evidence linking them to the break-in.

Joaquin Mills, 23, was charged with probation violation and possession of a fixed blade knife over two inches.

The other man, Rex Stalnacker, 24, was not arrested.
