Adventurous kids arrested at old Mercy hospital
The old Mercy Hospital building is sometimes a destination for people feeling adventurous and, for a few people, the adventure ended with a ride in a police car.
A total of nine people were taken into custody at the old Mercy Hospital yesterday evening, the youngest, only 11 years old.
Police say a security guard called for help. When police arrived, they found three kids outside and six people inside the chapel of the vacated hospital.
Two people were taken to jail for trespassing including 18-year-old Jose Alberto Morales and 18-year-old Javier Escobar.
Both were booked on a $1,000 bond.
