Burglars steal video cameras, computers from Sego Middle School

Posted: Updated:
AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

UPDATE:

The Richmond County Board of Education Police Department said the fire alarm at Sego Middle School went off Saturday. Officers thought they were responding to a fire, but caught something else on surveillance video.

Investigators said three people pushed in the plexiglas at the school gym and broke into the building around 4P.M.

They then went through the school, took computer systems, surveillance cameras and got away with two thousand dollars worth of property.

Chief Alfonzo Williams said they believe the suspects are young and could have been looking for quick cash. People around the area are urged to keep their eyes open for the equipment.

If you have any information, officers said you can report it anonymously and confidentially to the Richmond County Sheriff's office at (706) 821-1000, the school system or the Richmond County Board of Education Police Department at (706) 826-1000.
