Elizabeth City police are investigating a recent break-in and theft of money and raffle tickets at Northeastern High School.
Officers on Sept. 14 at approximately 8 a.m. responded to a call from school staffers, who advised someone had entered the band room area and had removed both cash and tickets from a locker, police Lt. Mike Boone said. There was no indication of forced entry and no one has been arrested, Boone said.
Meantime, NHS Band’s Club flyers are advising that plans for an Oct. 4 fund raiser for the club will continue, but band supporters are advising that, because of the break-in, stolen tickets cannot be honored.
The band supporters said that the stolen tickets had numbers from anywhere from 941 to 990 and from anywhere to 1001 to 1749 and that, should someone approach with a ticket with any of these numbers, to call the Police Department.
Boone said that anyone with information about the case is asked to contact either the Police Department at 335-4321 or the Crime Line at 335-5555. The Crime Line offers up to $2,000 rewards for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a person or persons. Callers do not have to provide their names.
