    August 13, 2013
    North Escambia County Florida
    omeone broke into the school on Highway 97 between about 4:30 Friday afternoon and 5:30 p.m. Saturday when the crime was discovered by a teacher. Surveillance video shows two people running down a hallway at 9:17 p.m.
    Thousands of dollars worth of electronics were stolen from throughout the school, including Apple computers, iPads, Wii gaming systems, cameras used by the school’s student-operated closed circuit TV station, along with other items  [extensive building damage]
    comment: There is no way those two kids took that many items and left on bicycles. They may have done the leg work, but someone older with knowledge of how to enter, exit and transport had to be there.

    Eight video cameras, six digital still cameras and a speaker system were all taken from one room, Salado said. Additionally, vandals used a hammer to smash two computer monitors.
    In June 2009, the school was hit by young vandals twice over a two-day period, Salado said. They splattered paint around several rooms and set off fire extinguishers, which left 60 computers damaged so badly they had to be replaced. The suspects were caught when they came back to the campus a second night to continue the vandalism, he said.
