Bellevue police have named two suspects who are believed to be the ones who caused $20,000 in damage to Bellevue East High School in July.

Twenty-year-old Orley Mosher was arrested and faces burglary charges for the incident. He is currently out of jail after posting $5,000 bail.

An arrest warrant has been issued for 20-year-old Jacoby Gepford for his alleged role in the burglary.

Police believe Gepford and Mosher broke into Bellevue East High School on July 11th, getting away with three laptops, a camera and an undetermined amount of cash.

Police say the suspects broke a top floor window to get in sometime between 3 and 4 a.m. Once inside, they rummaged through the administrative office and obtained keys to other offices in the school. In all, they caused $20,000 in damage.

"It absolutely hurts, that safety and security feeling that it takes away from you, when you go through something like that. But, I also think on the opposite side of that it really shows how the community comes together," said Amanda Oliver, Bellevue Public Schools.

It's the second break-in in the district in two years.
