The schools that have been hit are Isaacs, Scott, Kashmere Gardens and Concord, all elementaries, and Fleming Middle School.
"These schools have each been burglarized several times," says Amy Smith of Crime Stoppers. "The items taken in each incident include everything from cleaning supplies up to power washers and carpet cleaning machines."
So be on the lookout for clean criminals.
