Police have charged a 48-year-old man and a 46-year-old woman with alleged burglary and stealing offences, just hours after a reported incident at Geraldton Senior College.

About 6.50am yesterday, the pair allegedly entered a storeroom on school grounds and stole a handbag containing a purse with about $20 in it, belonging to a cleaner.

Officers arrested the suspects two-and-a-half hours later at their Rangeway homes, after reviewing CCTV footage.
