More thefts discovered at school

A list of items stolen from Chiefland High School a few months ago continues to grow longer.

In May, it was discovered that three pitching machines, valued at about $4,000, were stolen from a locked shed at McCallum Park. A $500 reward was offered for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons responsible for the theft. Back then, CHS softball coach Ginger Fuller said the thefts "knocked out" the idea the school had to purchase a batting cage.

School officials now say several cheerleading mats, worth about $2,500, and a commercial meat slicer, value undetermined, were also stolen.

"We're thinking it was on or about the same time the pitching machines were stolen," said CHS representative Becky Tyson last week. The theft was noticed two weeks ago during a cheerleader camp when, for the first time in months, the mats were needed to cover the floor of the gym to help prevent injury. The mats measure about 6 feet wide and are about 36 feet long.
