A Georgetown High School site manager arrived at the school Memorial Day to unlock the building for contractors working on the sprinkler system.
The worker said almost all the doors were locked when the contractors left Saturday evening.
It was sometime after that someone entered the building and stole more than $10,000 worth of electrical wire and hand tools belonging to Melton Electric Co. The items were in the maintenance room before they were taken.
The door to the maintenance room was unlocked but a worker said he is sure he locked it before he left Saturday.
Other wire was taken from the school’s auditorium.
A blue cart, not belonging to the contractors, was found near the gym doors. It is believed the cart was used to help carry away the tools and several rolls of electrical wire.
Tire tracks were found just outside the gym doors, the report states.
There are currently no suspects in the thefts. Anyone with information that may help police find whoever is responsible is urged to call police at 545-4300.
