MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The Covington County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a Friday night break-in at Straughn High School.

The break-in happened around 8 or 9 p.m. while the high school football team was playing a game out of town.

According to Sheriff Blake Turman, a number of things were stolen, including cash, but no specifics were given.

“We will catch the perp,” the sheriff stated in a Facebook post.

Covington County Schools Superintendent Shannon Driver declined to address specifics of the case citing the ongoing investigation, but he could tell WSFA 12 News the crime happened in the field house, not the main school building.

Driver said he hopes the investigation leads to an arrest soon.

If you have any information about this crime, please call the Covington County Sheriff’s Office.
