A man broke into the lockers of three Stadium High School runners Tuesday, according to police and Tacoma Public Schools.
The man, apparently not a student, entered the school’s Performing Arts Center, went into the boys locker room, pried open three lockers and pilfered their contents, school district spokeswoman Kathryn McCarthy said Thursday.
The contents belonged to three boys on the cross-country team.
Surveillance cameras captured images of the man in the halls, but not in the locker room, police spokeswoman Loretta Cool said.
Photos of the man were given to all Stadium staff members, and the school district told families of the break-in, McCarthy said.
Students are advised to bring only “necessary valuables” to school, McCarthy said. Stadium’s coaches will work with players to help them secure their valuables, she added.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call police at 253-798-4721 or Tacoma Public Schools at 253-571-1000.
