This is not the first time a Crescent City school was burglarized this year, Crescent City Police Officer Erik Apperson said, adding that the past year has been the worst in his four years as a school resource officer.

He said that a few weeks before this weekend's incident someone stole a computer from the high school. And on Jan. 21, someone broke into the announcer booth at the football field and stole $3,000 worth of sound equipment. Ten days after that someone broke into the Crescent Elk Middle School and took $300 of vending machine money from a coach's office.

andquot;Burglary is just a problem for schools period,andquot; Apperson said. andquot;There's so much property in them and, lets face it, they're not secure.andquot;
