Roanoke County detectives are asking for the public’s help identifying a man who entered Hidden Valley High school in the early morning hours of January 1, 2012 and attempted to steal a motorized wheelchair belonging to one of the staff members.
Security cameras inside and outside the school captured the incident. Police say the individual, who appears to be a white male in his 20’s or early 30’s, parked at a side entrance to the school around 4:30 a.m. When he entered the school through an unsecured door, he can be seen in security video attempting to access classrooms, the vending machine area, concession area, and several other locked doors. The male subject can also be seen in the security video riding around the high school and in the gym on a staff member’s motorized wheelchair. When the suspect left the school about an hour after entry, he attempted to take the wheelchair with him but was unsuccessful. The wheelchair was located in the school parking lot.
If you have any information regarding this case or the identity of the male subject, please contact Detective K. Saul at 777-8628 or 562
