A series of systematic burglaries have prompted American Fork High School administration to rekey the building.
Police Chief John Durrant and Principal Vernon Henshaw confirmed Monday that as much as $8,000 in selected merchandise has been stolen over the past several weeks."It feels like somebody has a key. Somebody's getting into the building," Henshaw said.
Items from different parts of the high school, including microphones, amplifiers, compact disc players, a computer and sound system components, have been taken without any evidence of break-in, Henshaw said.
Stakeout efforts by the American Fork Police Department have been fruitless, Durrant said.
Detective Steve Cornia, who is heading the investigation, said leads are very thin "at this time," but he believes students are involved.
