Atlanta police officers are looking for a man suspected of stealing a teacher’s wallet Aug. 31 from a classroom at Sarah Smith Elementary School.
Assistant Principal Freda Hamilton told police a man entered the school through an unsecured door that leads to the cafeteria sometime between 4:08 and 4:11 p.m. The man then walked up the stairs to a hallway where classrooms are located and he entered classroom 14, and soon after he left and went back down the stairs and out of the building.
The police statement provided by Kim Jones, a spokeswoman for Atlanta Police, said Lindsay Boulding, the teacher of classroom 14, was not in the room when the man walked in. When Boulding returned, she realized her wallet was missing from her purse.
The video surveillance was reviewed and the suspect was seen entering the classroom.
