Centennial’s security staff sent out a warning email to all faculty today, February 15, highlighting the importance of locking car doors during the school day.
According to the email, people of high school age are milling the parking lot looking for unlocked cars.
Student Resource Officer Marc Carneal, said that once an open car is found, the individuals proceed to search through the car, taking any cash they can find.
“They’re not actually breaking windows,” stated Mike Guizzotti, on-site Security Guard. “They’re just going around and trying different [car] doors.”
While no positive identification has been made, a description of the subjects’ car has been released. It has been described as an “older model Toyota Camry, gold in color, missing the passenger front hub cap, sticker on the right side of the trunk,” according to the email.
Carneal advises staff members to “keep an eye out for any suspicious subjects or vehicles in [Centennial’s] lot.”
Guizzotti extended the warning to students as well, notioning that they, too, should be cautious about leaving their cars unlocked.
