Police investigate two Logan school burglaries

By Jacob Fullmer

December 4, 2006 | LOGAN -- Police continue to investigate two elementary schools burglarized over the Thanksgiving weekend.

After Adams and Wilson Elementary schools let out last Wednesday for the extended break, someone broke into both schools after hours. Around $400 and a digital camera were stolen.

Lieutenant Tracy Hulse of Logan City Police Department said they believe juveniles are responsible for the thefts because nothing else was taken. He said the thieves must not have known most schools keep minimal amounts of money on campus overnight.

"It's a standard procedure for schools to make daily deposits," Hulse said.

The thieves gained entrance to both schools by breaking the glass windows and reaching through to open basement doors. They also caused close to $500 in damages, Husle said, by trying to enter rooms throughout the school. There are no available finger or shoe prints.

Hulse said certain schools in the area have more advanced security measures but no alarms were sounded at either school. Police believe the burglaries occurred between Sunday around noon and Monday morning before class began. A teacher visited one of the schools on Sunday and found no damage.

Police ask anyone with information to contact them at 716-9300.
