Man breaks into Northeast High, turns himself in

Start­Frag­ment

Po­lice have ar­res­ted a man they say broke in­to North­east High School in Ju­ly, walked around and left.

James Talucci, 20, turned him­self over to North­east De­tect­ives on Sept. 1 in con­nec­tion with a Ju­ly 17 burg­lary at the Cottman Av­en­ue school, po­lice said Monday. Po­lice last month re­leased sur­veil­lance foot­age of a young man break­ing in­to the school and walk­ing through the build­ing. Po­lice said noth­ing was taken but the burg­lar left be­hind a flash­light and a base­ball bat.

The video drew tips from the pub­lic, and po­lice ob­tained a search war­rant for Talucci’s Castor Gar­dens home. He wasn’t home when po­lice ar­rived Sept. 1, said Sgt. Den­nis Rosen­baum of North­east De­tect­ives, but he later turned him­self in.

Rosen­baum said Talucci was charged with burg­lary, crim­in­al mis­chief, crim­in­al tres­pass and de­fi­ant tres­pass. ••End­Frag­ment
