CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Police in Cape Girardeau investigated a burglary at Community Day School.

The school is in the 1900 block of Broadway.

An officer responded to the school on Saturday, August 5, around 8:30 a.m.

According to Officer Rich McCall, the woman who called to report the burglary said she noticed someone had been in the school because things were out of place.

McCall said the suspect or suspects got away with some money.

Kim Pickett, Community Day School Business Administrator, said she was surprised that someone would break into their facility because they are located in such a high traffic area.

"It makes us sad that anyone would break into a school," Pickett said.

She said the money that was taken was used for field trips to the movies, swimming, and other extracurricular activities.

Pickett additionally said that the weekend break in occurred when no one was present at the facility. A report stated when personnel first noticed the break in that there were some items displaced along with money taken.

"There wasn't a lot of damage but this is still discouraging," Pickett added.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Cape Girardeau Police Department at 573-335-6621.
