Video Catches Theft Suspects Swiping State Championship Trophies

HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. – Two suspects accused of stealing championship trophies from an area high school were caught on surveillance video.

Officials with the Sumner County Sheriff's Office said at least two suspects broke into Beech High School on December 27.

When it comes to football, 2009 and 2012 were banner years for Beech High School. As students return from winter break next week, they'll find that 2013 will be remembered as the year someone took those state titles away.

The surveillance video showed two people dressed in all black breaking into the school during the morning when the campus was empty, according to Sumner County Sheriff's Office Major Don Linzy.

According to officials, they went right for the trophy case, and while one started picking out the hardware, the other got out duct tape to carefully spell out "HHS." After a few minutes, they each grabbed a championship trophy and headed for the door.

Investigators said they aren't sure if the suspects are from Hendersonville High School, Beech High School, another rival school or if they are in fact the real thieves. On Tuesday, school officials said they weren't sure either.

Anyone with information about this theft should call the Sumner County Sheriff's Office at (615) 452-2616, option 0.

The suspects responsible could face burglary and theft charges.
