Police say they have detained three men in connection to a burglary at a Del Mar elementary school Wednesday.

San Diego police said they were were alerted at 4 a.m. that a break-in occurred at Del Mar Heights Elementary School in the 1300 block of Boquito Drive.

Border Patrol agents later stopped the three men at a Temecula checkpoint and found iPads and a projector from the school.


Investigators are looking into whether this break-in is part of a series of school burglaries around North County in recent weeks.

KPBS has created a public safety coverage policy to guide decisions on what stories we prioritize, as well as whose narratives we need to include to tell complete stories that best serve our audiences. This policy was shaped through months of training with the Poynter Institute and feedback from the community. You can read the full policy here.
