ST. CROIX - Police and V.I. Education Department officials are continuing to investigate a break-in at John Woodson School that was discovered Wednesday morning.
Education spokeswoman Ananta Pancham said Wednesday that the administrators and staff at the junior high school, located just off Midland Road, reported to the school in the morning and realized that there had been a burglary and several items were missing.
Pancham said based on the initial inspection of the campus, school officials and police have determined that only the school's main office was affected by the break-in. She said equipment taken during the break-in included several computers, radios and other office supplies.
Discussions with Woodson principal Vaughn Hewitt confirmed that none of the classrooms at the school had been broken into and that the school was operating normally.
An itemized listing of the items stolen and the estimated cost of the break-in to the department was not available Wednesday, according to Pancham.
No information was available about how the burglars may have entered the school, and an investigation is under way.
Residents who may have any information about the break-in can call police at 911 or call the confidential tip line at Crime Stoppers USVI at 1-800-222-8477.
