Submitted by Meridian Public School District
MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - Three individuals broke into Poplar Springs Elementary School over the weekend of September 9-10, 2023, stealing over 70 school electronic devices.
An arrest warrant was made on Monday, September 18, 2023, charging one of the individuals with breaking into a commercial business.
“I am disheartened that these individuals would break into one of our campuses and steal from our students,” said Dr. Amy Carter, MPSD Superintendent. “Any help the community can provide in helping us find these individuals will be greatly appreciated.”
MPSD Campus Police are also actively looking for the other two suspects who were involved. Some devices are still circulating through the community based on location software in the devices. Those who are found to be in possession of these can also be charged with possession of stolen property.
If you have any information, please contact the MPSD Campus Police at (601) 482-1225.
