DAYTON — A loaded gun and numerous rounds of ammunition and other items were stolen from a school worker’s unlocked vehicle at Dayton Boys Preparatory Academy Friday morning, a Dayton police report showed.
Officers responded around 11 a.m. to Dayton Boys Preparatory Academy on West Third Street.
“My supervisor just witnessed somebody getting out of my car,” the worker said in a call to the Montgomery County Regional Dispatch Center. “I need to report my car just got broken into.”
Dayton Public Schools issued a statement Friday afternoon:
“ We can only confirm that a staff member reported to our security staff that there was a theft from an unlocked vehicle of cash and a laptop. We have no additional information.”
The worker told dispatchers his Army book bag with a laptop in it and $800 cash was taken from the vehicle. A Dayton police report showed a gun loaded with .224 blue tip rounds and 50 rounds of ammo also were taken.
The district’s policy on weapons says: “Unless otherwise permitted by law, staff members are not permitted to bring a deadly weapon or dangerous ordnance into a school safety zone."
The caller told dispatchers the thief walked off into a nearby neighborhood.
The thief was described as a juvenile male, between 5 feet 6 and 5 feet 8 inches tall, wearing khaki pants and a black and white Nike hooded jacket, according to emergency dispatch traffic.
