I received the following message from Lisa Ibison, a local photographer, regarding a break-in at Bell Mountain Middle School...
Was hoping you could post something about this, maybe it will help to catch these scum!
Bell Mountain Middle School was broken into Wednesday night. The thieves were there for about 45 mintues [from about 11:30pm to 12:15am]. They broke into the E Wing classrooms which are the portable ones.. They broke all of the windows and stole equipment.
The Sherrifs were there today taking pictures and dusting for prints. It is very unfortunate not only did they break into the school/vandalise it, they stole expensive equipment and then today the staff and students had to deal with. The staff was cleaning up and making arrangements for all of those teachers to relocate their classrooms.
Update Mar 27, 2009: I edited the above mail to remove the items stolen and descriptions of the criminals, at the request of the school district, which apparently came at the request of the Sheriff.
However, there is now a "Wanted" poster, which you can download here...
