Authorities with the Pike County Sheriff’s Department are looking for individuals with knowledge pertaining to two burglaries at the Bowling Green R-I School District, according to the school district’s superintendent.

In a telephone interview with the Bowling Green Times, Dr. Matthew Frederickson said two vehicles in the parking lot of the local school district have been burglarized.

“We have learned of at least two different situations where pocketbooks were left in a car, and, when the owner returned, the pocketbook was not there,” Frederickson said.

According to Frederickson, the break-ins occurred at different locations on the school district’s parking lots and that nothing else was taken from the vehicles.

A photo of a person of interest circulated by the Pike County Sheriff’s Department on Facebook seems to depict a middle-aged woman walking in the high school parking lot, near the school’s Vocational Agriculture building.

Frederickson said the break-ins did not occur near the agriculture building.

Calls to Pike County Sheriff Stephen Korte were directed to his voicemail. This story will be updated with remarks from the county sheriff once the message is returned.

Those with information pertaining to these break-ins are encouraged to contact the Pike County Sheriff’s Department at 324-3202 or to contact their local law enforcement agency.
