Members of the local sheriff’s specialized robbery team which last week arrested an adult and four juveniles in connection with two burglaries reported at Placerita Junior High School have been told by prosecutors to get more information.

Members of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff Station’s Career Offender Burglary/Robbery Apprehension (COBRA) Team identified the suspects after a month of investigation, sheriff’s spokeswoman Shirley Miller told The Signal a week ago.

An 18-year-old Newhall man was identified as the adult suspected in the burglaries.

This week, however, prosecutors with the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office asked investigators for more information before they proceed with prosecution.

“We requested further investigation,” DA spokesman Ricardo Santiago told The Signal Friday.

Asked about the status of the four juveniles arrested in connection with the same offense, Santiago said he would investigate.

Lap top computers and projection equipment were stolen from the school on two occasions, she said, on Feb. 7 and Feb. 20.

“They detained the suspects and recovered the majority of property taken,” Miller said March 16, referring to the COBRA team members.
