Nearly $100,000 worth of video equipment stolen from Jonathan Levin H.S.

Thieves broke into Jonathan Levin High School over the weekend and stole nearly $100,000 worth of video equipment. The principal says the break-in happened sometime between Saturday afternoon and Sunday. It took the Bronx school three years to buy the equipment and the school is asking for the community?s help to get it back. About 15 to 20 cameras monitor the building each day. However, the principal says no one checks the cameras on the weekends. So the next chance to view the tapes is when they are archived, a process that usually takes two weeks. But the principal says he's working with the security company to speed up the process. Police say they have not ruled out the possibility that the robbery may have been an inside job.
