School bus burglarized, band members' belongings stolen during weekend parade performance
BATON ROUGE - A school bus was burglarized while members of Woodlawn High School's marching band performed for a Mardi Gras parade in downtown Saturday.
The break-in happened while the band was marching in the Krewe of Orion parade Saturday night. Those responsible broke into the bus while it was parked under an I-10 overpass.
An East Baton Rouge Schools spokesperson says a number of personal items were stolen, including cell phones.
"They had their personal items taken from them while they are out doing something they love," said Scott Steven, Principal of Woodlawn High School.
Despite the theft, Steven says the students are not deterred from performing again.
"We're not going to let this slow us down. It's unfortunate, but we're still going to let them march on," Stevens said.
There are no known suspects at this time.
