MIDDLETOWN−During the last four days of June, young burglars struck three township elementary schools, leaving a trail of graffiti behind in one, police said.

Four burglars entered Fairview Elementary School on Cooper Road shortly before 11 p.m. Monday, police said. It's unclear if they did any damage or took anything.

Hours later, about 2:45 a.m. Tuesday, three young males illegally entered Bayview Elementary School on Leonardville Road in the Belford section of the township.  The suspects vandalized the school with graffiti in several places, police said. The three suspects, estimated to be between 15 and 20, wore masks and had on backpacks. One of them wore a pink facemask and a brown or maroon hooded sweatshirt with the words Los Angeles embroidered in white on the front and carried a white Champion backpack.

River Plaza Elementary School, in the River Plaza section of the township, was burglarized about 8:20 p.m. Thursday, police said.  There are two suspects, both white and estimated to be between 15 and 20: a male with long, wavy dark hair, a black t-shirt, dark colored shorts and black socks and sneakers.  The female suspect has straight light brown or reddish blond hair and was wearing green matching pants and top.
