Six people, including two juveniles, were arrested this week in connection with two Long Beach school break-ins, police said Thursday.

The first incident occurred Sunday around 11:15 a.m. when Long Beach police responded to Garfield Elementary School, where they assisted campus police with the arrest of two male suspects who allegedly broke into Garfield and stole property.

Police identified the suspects as 19-year-old William Minor of Long Beach and 18-year-old Keyray Stinson of Los Angeles. Both were charged on suspicion of commercial burglary. Additionally, Minor was charged for allegedly resisting arrest and Stinson was also charged with allegedly providing false identity to a peace officer.

Then, shortly before 2 p.m., Long Beach police responded to a second burglary report, this time at Hughes Middle School. Arrested were 20-year-old Christopher Rebolo of Signal Hill, 19-year-old Christian Alvarez of Long Beach and two juveniles between 14 and 16 years old.

The four were charged on suspicion of commercial burglary, authorities said. Additionally, Alvarez and Rebolo were charged on suspicion of trespassing.

Police said several schools have been burglarized in recent months and they were trying to determine if those arrested over the weekend are connected to any of those previous break-ins.
