The Christian County Sheriff’s Office responded to a break-in and vandalism call at 3 PM at Faith Bible Christian Academy located at 301 Mary Street in Rosamond.  Deputies responded to find damage had been done to the inside of the facility, including damage to the security system, computers, trophy cases, as well as a school-owned van. 

 

The suspects gained access to a locked office by destroying a door.  A classroom window had been destroyed as well and items such as candy, sports drinks, and an undetermined amount of money had also been stolen. The school van was stolen but later returned by the suspects. 

 

Video footage obtained showed three male suspects inside the building at approximately 12:40 AM on January 19th. The ensuing investigation led to the arrest of three male juveniles who all admitted to taking part in the incident.  Some of the stolen property was recovered in their possession.

 

Two of the three suspects were enrolled as students at the school.  All three male juveniles are facing multiple felony charges and were detained in a juvenile detention facility pending their first court appearance before a Christian County Judge.
