Break-in reported at Bremerton’s Crownhill Elementary Wednesday

Laptops, Chromebooks taken, a school official said.

BREMERTON — Crownhill Elementary was burglarized overnight, school officials said Wednesday.

“We are saddened to discover this morning that someone broke into our school last night,” a Facebook post from the school’s account read at 8:50 a.m. “It appears many expensive items were stolen.”

Bremerton School District spokesperson Karen Bevers confirmed the burglary and said police were investigating the matter. She said pricey electronics were taken including laptops, Chromebooks, and a speaker system.

“They did take quite a bit of stuff — valuable things,” she said. “It’s going to be a hit for the school district.”

Crownhill is a Pre-K through 5th grade elementary school in west Bremerton, with an enrollment of about 432 according to state figures. Its student body is among the poorest in the county, with 57 percent of students receiving free or reduced-price meals, state data show.

Bevers noted there was no sign of damage done to the building when staff discovered the burglary Wednesday morning.

Bremerton Police are investigating the incident. Detective Keith Sargent said it was not yet clear whether a single person, or multiple people were involved.

“We’re in the middle of investigating it,” he said.
