A former Siegel High football player has been arrested and charged with burglary according to a police report after he was caught on surveillance cameras inside Siegel’s football fieldhouse.

The 15-year-old, dismissed from the team last month, was arrested July 31 after Siegel assistant coach Brian Guthrie caught the juvenile in the fieldhouse and chased after him. Guthrie had received notification of a potential burglary after coach Greg Wyant saw the juvenile on the surveillance system through a smart phone application. The juvenile was identified on the camera.

Guthrie chased the juvenile toward the Regency Park subdivision.

“We kind of had a feeling who it was,” Wyant said. “We didn’t know for sure.”

The juvenile admitted to detectives that he used a set of keys that had recently gone missing to enter the fieldhouse to go through the coaches desks, according to the report. The juvenile also told detectives where he threw the keys when he was chased by Guthrie, the report stated.

A search of the juvenile’s home did not turn up any school property and it appeared that no property was taken during the incident.

The juvenile was charged with burglary due to the intent.
