Upper Arlington: Three girls stuck on roof at Jones Middle School

The Upper Arlington Fire Division was called last week to rescue three girls who were found on the roof of a local school building.

Three female juveniles, identified by Upper Arlington police as students who will be attending Upper Arlington High School this fall, were charged with criminal trespassing after an officer on patrol observed them on the roof of a building near the track at Jones Middle School, 2100 Arlington Ave., at 4:25 p.m. July 23.

Police said there didn't appear to be any damage to the building's roof. However, the UAFD's Engine 71 had to be called so a ladder could be used to get the girls down, reports said.
