Two people were taken into custody -- 19-year-old Terrell Babbitt, of Brooklyn, and 21-year-old David Leonardo, of the Bronx.

Babbitt and Leonardo are facing a number of charges, including burglary and petit larceny.

This comes after a string of burglaries at schools in the Bronx. Police say tens of thousands of dollars worth of calculators and other equipment have been stolen.
One Bronx school had to close Friday after it was broken into for the second time in just over a week.
It is unclear at this time if Saturday's burglary is connected to any of the other incidents.
