Thefts at LHS under police investigation

February 3, 2005

Police are investigating four thefts that have occurred in the past four months at Lansing High School.

Items including a stereo system, digital cameras and $200 cash have been reported stolen in the thefts, which date from October to January.

None of the items have turned up, Lansing Police Chief Steve Wayman said.

"It's a unique challenge for an investigator because you're dealing with the whole high school, which has 600 to 700 kids," Wayman said.

The lengthy time frame between instances of when the crimes actually happened causes additional complications in the investigation.

"Cases are difficult to follow up on given the time frame," he said.

In other similar cases in the past, investigators pieced together information from a variety of sources. They're trying to do the same with these thefts and are asking that anyone with information about the missing items contact police.

Wayman said that any information is valuable.

"Sometimes the smallest information is the biggest break," Wayman said.
