Police are searching for the thief or thieves who stole nearly $4000 in instruments from a Bucks County elementary school.
Investigators say the culprit broke into the Brian Heckman Elementary School on Maple Avenue and Cherry Street in Langhorne at some point between midnight and 7 a.m. Tuesday. Once inside, the thief entered the modular music room and stole six violins, a trumpet and a clarinet. The total replacement cost for the stolen instruments is approximately $3,700.
“I think it’s pretty said,” said Casey Shtino, the mother of a student at Heckman. “It’s in the back of the building and it’s for the kids. Why are you taking things from kids?”
