Las Cruces Catholic School Seeks Help Identifying Man Who Broke into School Campus
Las Cruces Catholic School (LCCS) staff is asking for the public’s assistance in locating an individual who broke into the school and stole more than $5,000 of school property.
The burglary occurred early Sunday morning around 12 a.m. inside one of the school’s portables. Surveillance video shows the suspect, allegedly armed with a gun, flee with several items on a bicycle. The suspect then returned to a different portable at around 4 a.m. on foot, carrying a dolly. He stole several Chromebooks, laptops, projectors, air purifiers (for air ventilation and purification due to COVID-19), webcams, sanitizers, disinfectant wipes to school books, crayons and STEM project supplies for students.
“In addition to school property, many of the items he stole belonged to our students,” says Principal Adrian Galaz. “The suspect took actual personal items from the desks of teachers and students from calculators to even pens and pencils our students use for school.”
A police report has been filed with the Las Cruces Police Department. If you have any information on this burglary or recognize the suspect, please call Las Cruces Police at (575) 526-0795, you can remain anonymous.
