Thousands Of Dollars In Items Stolen During High School Football Game

Last updated on Monday, October 28, 2013

(INDIANAPOLIS) - During a high school football game thousands of dollars in electronics were stolen in a locker room theft.

Police have launched an investigation during Friday night's football sectional game at Howe High School when they were playing against Indianapolis Lutheran High School. While the teams were battling it out on the football field--someone was in the locker room stealing everything from iPhone's to Air Jordan's.

According to police reports, someone ransacked the visitor locker room inside Howe high school while the sectional tourney played outside.

Lutheran Athletic Director Tom Finchum says 11 guys had stuff stolen from phones to headsets to school computers.

Eleven Saints team members told police they had something missing. Valuables that included electronics, cash and brand name clothes.

It's the second time this year thefts targeted a facility at Howe. In July it was the concession stand.

According to police reports, witnesses saw two men running through the parking lot carrying items just before the end of the game.

Officials at Howe High School say they will increase security - possibly having someone in the locker room during games.

Both schools plan to follow up with police Monday.
