WATERTOWN, MN – Carver County Sheriff Jason Kamerud issued a release stating that at 2:33 p.m. June 9 his Office received a 9-1-1 call to report a burglary in progress at the Watertown High School, 1001 Hwy 25 NW, Watertown. A teacher at the school encountered some teens who were throwing a garbage can onto the High School gym floor. The teacher chased the teens out of the school and they got into a late model black color passenger car which drove north on Quarry Avenue. The teacher thought there were four subjects inside the school at the time he chased them.
Wright County Sheriff’s Office was notified of the incident and was able to locate the vehicle
with the teenage parties involved in Montrose at a Casey’s store. The teenagers were transported
back to the Watertown High School.
Through our investigation, a juvenile located an open door the day before and put a sock in it in
order to open it at a later time. The teenagers had been driving around and had come to the
school and entered by going in the entrance door with the sock in it. They said they had kicked
some garbage cans on the basketball floor and had only been inside the school a short period of
time when the teacher showed up, so they ran out of the school, leaving in a vehicle.
Parents of the juveniles were notified and released to their parents. This case is still under
investigation by the Carver County Sheriff’s Office.
