PORTLAND, Maine — Two local men and a boy were arrested early Friday after a burglary was reported at Hall Elementary School, according to police.

Isaiah David Taylor, 18, is facing a burglary charge while Daniel Perez, 20, and a 16-year old boy both are accused of criminal trespass, according to Portland Detective Sgt. Kevin Cashman.

Shortly after 2:30 a.m., the burglar alarm went off at the school, prompting police to go to the Orono Road facility, Cashman said. Upon arrival, police saw several males dressed in dark clothing fleeing from the back of the building.

Shortly after, officers checking the area discovered a running vehicle in a Sunset Avenue driveway with several computers in the back seat, according to Cashman.

The trio was found in the residence and all were arrested, Cashman said. Approximately 15 computers and several other items stolen from the school were recovered. The stolen property’s estimated value is $40,000.

Taylor is being held on $1,000 bail at the Cumberland County Jail, while Perez was released on $100 bail and the teenager is at the Long Creek Correctional Facility.
