Computer equipment was taken during a weekend burglary at Brownwood High School, police said.
Someone entered the agricultural science building through the main door and took two laptop computers, two computer projectors and a computer monitor, a report by officer Trey Weathermon states.
Weathermon was dispatched to the school Saturday morning. There was no forced entry, but a school employee said he remembers locking the door the previous day, Weathermonís report states.
In an unrelated incident, a 26-year-old Jacksonville man told Mears Ford employees he was in the land business and wrote a check last month for more than $28,000 to buy a 2006 Lincoln LS.
It was after 5 p.m. and banks were closed, so the dealership couldnít verify that the check was good, a report by officer Zane Taylor states. The dealership allowed the man to take the car on good faith.
The check wasnít good. It had been written on a closed account, Taylorís report states.
When the dealership learned that, employees text-messaged the manís cell phone, but couldnít get him to return the car.
