Three schools burglarized

DULUTH - Two Gwinnett schools were broken into Monday night, school officials said.

Gwinnett County Public Schools spokeswoman Sloan Roach said electronics were stolen from Richard Hull Middle School in Duluth and Parsons Elementary School in Suwanee.

"Eleven trailers at Hull Middle were broken into and 11 LCD projectors were taken," Roach said. "At Parsons about five trailers were broken into and some laptop computers and student computer stations were stolen."

Roach said Mill Creek High School was also burglarized this weekend. She said 12 printers and 32 calculators were stolen from the Hoschton school.

According to Roach, these are not the first burglaries this school year. She said Mill Creek had a break-in last week.

"I wish I could tell you this was the first time, but it's not," Roach said. "Unfortunately, there are a lot of bad people out there."

Roach said school resource officers are looking into the burglaries and investigating whether the three could be connected.

"We're taking every step to keep school property safe and keep our schools safe," Roach said.

While Roach said she could not discuss any current or future security plans, she said the proper steps will be taken to continue to make the schools safe by adding or changing security as needed.

"I can't discuss what we do because our efforts would be pointless, but we do continue to look at our security measures on our campus."
