UNION COUNTY, N.C. — Four teens were arrested after they allegedly broke into Weddington Elementary School on Sunday night.
Union County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched at 10:48 p.m. to an alarm call at the school.
A deputy arrived at the school just before 11 p.m. and found two unoccupied vehicles in the parking lot.
While searching the property, the deputy found an open window and spotted Leah Young, 17, Cooper Glasgow, 17, Courtney Connell, 17, and Edward Milano, 18, inside the building.

The teens are due in court on Sept 10.
