Arson attempted at Lincoln Northeast High School, police say


Northeast High School, 2635 N. 63rd St.

Police say they are investigating another arson in north Lincoln, this one at Lincoln Northeast High School.

Officer Luke Bonkiewicz said police were called to the school at 2635 N. 63rd St. Monday night after an employee there discovered someone had tried to throw a lit, glass incendiary device at a window but it didn't break the glass.

At least 30 jailed for curfew violations late Monday, early Tuesday

The only damage was burned grass where it fell.

Bonkiewicz said the investigation was ongoing and that police are looking into the possibility it was connected to similar incidents at Huntington Elementary School and Bethany Library a night earlier.
