Cameras, money and cell phones were among the items stolen from students at Apalachee High School earlier this month.
At least seven students reported that items had been stolen from their vehicles during school hours.
Items taken included a wallet, two digital cameras, a laptop computer, $40 in cash, a dash mounted DVD screen, a Cobra police scanner and a Sony Watt amplifier.
In a separate incident, a student reported that a cell phone was removed from his locker while he was in gym class. The phone was valued at $150.
Just to let everyone know. There is still stuff being stolen from students at Apalachee High School. They are taken them right from girls purses, lockers, desks, jackets, where ever they can get their hands on them. There are IPODS, cell phones, MP3's, money, etc.... My daughters's IPOD was stolen about a month ago. Yes, we reported it. Was anything done? I don't know, they would only say they are looking into it. Do we know who stole it? Yes, but there is no proof. Do we know who this person sold it to, to buy drugs? Yes, but we are not sure. Was there a witness to the stealing? Yes, but nothing was done as far as I know. Are the parents who are very interested in getting their children's items back, being kept informed? No, unless we call or email ourselves.
If there is this much theft going on in this school, then something needs to done.
I'm so glad I found this site...Keep up the good work

Still happening. My son had his Ipod and cell phone stolen from his gym locker. He says the combo's are easy to get and you cannot lock the locker yourself with a padlock. After 2 years and its still going on in the exact same place you would think something would be done. At least give the students to lock up things in a safe place during gym. with thier own lock.
