Thieves break into band bus during Christmas parade

ATLANTA — Police are investigating the theft of cell phones, cash and other items from members of a high school marching band while they performed at the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Christmas Parade in Atlanta.

Authorities say someone broke into the school bus, parked near Centennial Olympic Park downtown, and stole items belonging to members of the Central Carroll High School marching band.

Police said the bus was being watched by an attendant, but was left unattended for about 30 minutes. Police said iPhones, iPads, cellphones and cash were among items stolen.

School officials tell WSB-TV that the band plans to return next year to perform in the parade.

I'd look a little closer at the "attendant". It's a long time racket in Atlanta. "Watch your car Ma'am?" Then when you return you've been punked.

Why is this in the Albany Herald?

Because the Albany Herald put it in there.

In case Murfree wants to pay for the lost items like they apparently have in the past as far as the Dougherty Bands go.
