Juveniles involved with stolen iPad and tainted brownies

A Thursday afternoon report of the theft of an electronic device in the 300 block of Homer Street has led to the arrest of two juveniles, according to a Sunnyside police report.

A school official at the Sunnyside School District’s Bridges program reported the iPad device missing from the building at approximately 3:30 p.m. Thursday.

The two juveniles suspected of taking the device were located and taken into custody and arrested on charges of second degree theft.

Police are also continuing to investigate a report of students falling ill following the suspected ingestion of an unknown substance yesterday afternoon. Officials at Sunnyside High School reported a number of students appeared to be suffering from elevated heart rates and blood pressure, according to the police report.

“It is believed the students ingested tainted brownies, samples of which have been sent to the state criminal lab for analysis,” said Sunnyside Police Sgt. Scott Bailey.

The students were sent home with parents for their safety, Bailey said.

The incident continues to be investigated, he added.

Police also received a report of a group of unidentified solicitors attempting to sell children’s books in the 1700 block of Cascade Way yesterday, (Thursday). Upon a search of the area, police were unable to locate any suspicious individuals.

In other activity during the past 24 hours, police responded to four reports of juvenile problems, two animal complaints, a report of lost property, one loud music complaint and a report of shots fired.

Officers also investigated two suspicious circumstances, two traffic hazards and one report of threats.

Sunnyside police provided one agency assist and two citizen assists, took two informational calls, served one court order and made one welfare check since Thursday morning.
