ALTUS, Okla. – Oklahoma high school students are trying to move forward after a Grinch targeted their school during Thanksgiving break.
A teacher discovered the burglary after returning to Altus Public Schools from the break.
According to KSWO, the alleged thieves broke a glass door, reached through and let themselves in before heading to a choir room and stealing a safe with more than $3,000 in it.
“It’s always an uphill battle to get funding for things like music and the arts. The students work very hard for it. People came to see the show and were very supportive of it, but to have the financial side of it disappear is just heartbreaking. So for their sake I hope something gets done,” Altus High School Director of Choir Nicholas Young said.
