Arch Rivals: Hale Students Busted for Blanchet Basketball Burglary

Seattle police busted two teens burglars for a break-in during a high school basketball game at Bishop Blanchet High School earlier this month, a police report says.

As the Blanchet Braves and Nathan Hale Raiders battled it out on the basketball court on the evening of December 18th, a police report says two Hale students snuck into a Blanchet locker room and made off with several iPods.

A staff member spotted the two teens and called for help. The teens fled the school but were picked up by members of SPD’s Anti-Crime Team, who took the boys home to their parents.

The Blanchet Braves beat the Raiders 49-48 that night, but the pilfered iPods were never recovered.
