No charges for 5 teenagers found on top of Saline school
Charges won’t be sought against five Ann Arbor teenagers who were found by Saline police on the roof of Houghton School late Saturday night, according to a police report.
Police were dispatched at 9:09 p.m. and found four 16-year-old boys and a 15-year-old boy in the school, at 555 Mills Road, according to the report. Officers were dispatched after a caller reported seeing people on the school’s roof.
According to the report, police arrived at the building and didn’t see anyone on the roof. One investigator approached a door on the east side of the building near the southeast corner and saw two lights in the building. However, the lights quickly moved out of sight.
The investigator notified another police officer on the opposite side of the building of the lights and the officer said he could see the teens on the roof of the building.
The teenagers were told to get off the building and they made their way down a wall near the main entrance to the building. They identified themselves to police and were taken to the Saline Police Department for questioning.
More investigation revealed the boys did not cause any damage to the school and nothing was reported stolen. Police decided to close the case without prosecution, according to the report.
Houghton has been closed since 2010 and used to be an elementary school.
