BREWER, Maine — A couple of youngsters found an open door at the old Brewer Middle School on Saturday afternoon and decided to go inside.

After exploring the open facility for a period of time, “A 7- and a 10-year-old walked out with a laptop,” Brewer police Sgt. David Lord said Sunday.

The two boys were caught by police who gave them a firm talking to and then released them to their parents, the sergeant said.

“They were scared,” Lord said. “I don’t think either one had been in trouble” with the law before.

Police, who are still investigating the matter, have decided they probably will not charge the boys, Lord said, adding, “We’re still sorting it out.” (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
