Police Search for Boys Comes Up Short
Seven Barrington patrol officers searched an area between Primrose Hill and St. Andrew's schools last Friday night for two boys believed to have been entering unlocked cars.
Seven Barrington patrol officers searched the area around the Primrose Hill School last Friday night, Nov. 9, looking for two boys believed to have been entering unlocked vehicles.
Police received a call at around 10 pm from a woman who said the boys, believed to be between 14 and 16 years old, were “going through cars,” according to the police report.
The woman spotted them walking near the school, drove up to them and then gave chase in her vehicle, police said.
The woman said the boys were heading toward Winsor Street south of the elementary school. They apparently jumped a fence to get into the neighborhood betwee Winsor and Federal Road, which includes St. Andrew’s School.
She said the boys were wearing dark-colored sweatshirts. No other description was reported.
The police officers checked the wooded area near the schools and the streets in that neighborhood, according to the police report. They could not locate the juveniles.
The last patrol officer in the search party gave up the search at around 11 pm. There were no reports to the police of items missing from any vehicles.
