Burglars broke into Wellborn High School on Sunday, stealing computers and radios, while leaving damaged doors and windows in their wake, police and school officials said this morning.

Anniston police Sgt. Chris Sparks said the school’s principal discovered the break-in Sunday evening.

Sparks said the school sustained damage to several doors and windows in 10 offices and classrooms. Two laptop computers, two handheld radios and a hard drive were reported stolen, according to a police report. The items are worth $1,520, the report stated.

Mike Fincher, director of safety and security for Calhoun County Schools, said the school was operating on a normal class schedule today.

Fincher said he was still evaluating this morning how much damage was done and whether anything else was missing.

“We’re doing a complete inventory right now,” Fincher said by phone.

Investigators are also trying to determine how the suspects entered the building, Fincher said.

Sparks said police are still following up on information provided by the school.

Wellborn Elementary School was also burglarized in January, the sergeant said. No suspects have been charged in that incident.
