Someone Hates Kashmere Gardens Schools

It's summertime -- doesn't everyone want to get as far away from school as possible?

Not in Kashmere Gardens.

Someone, or some group of people, is systematically breaking into schools in the neighborhood and stealing whatever they can.

Over $50,000 worth of stuff has been taken.

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.

Crime Stoppers is offering up to $5,000 for tips; call 713-222-8477 to drop that dime.
