December 4, 2006 | LOGAN -- Police continue to investigate
two elementary schools burglarized over the Thanksgiving
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
Police ask anyone with information to contact them
