Early Sunday morning one of our Central Station Dispatchers received an audio activation coming from the supply room office of Caruthers Elementary School. As he listened in and heard multiple male voices laughing and banging sounds. As a result, the Fresno County Sheriff’s department was immediately dispatched and arrived minutes later.
The suspects were attempting to steal food from the school’s cafeteria. Our dispatcher heard the suspects laughing and talking about going to the freezer to get the “good stuff”.
Deputies apprehended four men exiting the cafeteria holding duffel bags filled with over $1000 worth of food. The men were arrested on suspicion of burglary and booked into the Fresno County Jail.
