Three Pasco schools burglarized



Three Pasco County schools were burglarized over the weekend, and deputies believe the break-ins may have been related.

More than 30 classrooms at River Ridge Middle School were burglarized, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. Burglars also broke into portable classrooms at Chasco Elementary School, as well as the concession area at Ridgewood High School.

Forensics units are processing the schools now to find out what was stolen. Pasco Sheriff Chris Nocco said at least a few computers were taken and many classrooms were ransacked. He said no alarm systems were activated at the three schools this weekend in relation to the burglaries.

"We're trying to find out when the break-ins occurred," Nocco said. More here.
