News Nearby: Report: High School Kids Skipped Class, Robbed Houses

Half a dozen boys from Tucker High School are said to have been busted for burglary.

Reports are coming in regarding Tucker High School students who have allegedly been burglarizing houses when they should have been in class.

Sources say at least six boys skipped class on several occasions in recent weeks and broke into nearby houses, stealing multiple items and stashing them in Cofer Park.

One of the boys confessed to his parents, and they then turned him into local police. The boy provided investigators with the names of his accomplices, according to a neighborhood resident.

School Principal James Jackson told Patch he hadn't yet spoken to police about the alleged incidents and could not give any more details at this time.

An email to the DeKalb County Police Department's spokesperson was not immediately returned.

Patch is following up on this story and will have more information as soon as it is available.
