On Friday, May 8, while the middle school baseball team and girl’s lacrosse team were practicing, items were stolen from the athletic locker rooms. A cell phone, iPod and cash were taken from a member of the baseball team.
According to Superintendent of Schools Dr. Larry Licopoli, the district was working with the Nassau Police Department Third Precinct. Dr. Licopoli said the locker room door was left open and someone went through the carry-bags that were not secured in lockers and stole some iPods and cell phones. “I met with [middle school principal] Mr. [Mark] Barth and [athletic director] Mr. [Ralph] Amitrano and we put together all the corrective measures in terms of securing the locker room,” he said.
According to Deputy Superintendent Dr. Michael Nagler, school security cameras were working properly, but did not pick up the person or persons responsible for the theft.
