By IRENE NOLAN
Dare County Sheriff's Office is asking the public's help in identifying
suspects in a breaking and entering incident at Cape Hatteras Secondary
School in Buxton on the night of Wednesday, Aug. 6.
Sgt. Doug Oberbeck, six persons were observed on security videotape
while breaking into buses and a building at about 10:30 p.m. that night.
The vehicle in which they are thought to have traveled to the school was also caught on video in the parking lot.
said the suspects broke into several buses and one building on the
north end of the school near where the buses are parked. They
then tried to break into at least one other building on the south end
of the campus.
Nothing of value was taken in the break-in, and there was no vandalism, Oberbeck said.
School officials noticed the break-ins, checked the security video, and called the Sheriff's Office.
one at the school or the Sheriff's Office recognized the suspects on
the video, which raises the possibility that they are not residents,
Anyone who recognizes any of the suspects or has
information about the incident is asked to call Doug Oberbeck at
252-475-9355 or school resource officer Gary Kierney.
