Associated Press Release
ALBANY, Ga. (AP) -- Investigators in Mitchell County are trying to solve an unusual theft from a school.
Investigator Melvin Ray says someone took about 20 students' cell phones from a locked file room at Baconton Community Charter School. The school's policy is if a child is caught with their cell phone during school hours, it is taken from them and returned at the end of the school year.
Ray told WALB-TV that the school office had been broken into before for money boxes, but the theft of cell phones is a first. The file room had signs of forced entry, but the school has no surveillance cameras.
