Akron Police are looking for the suspects who broke into the former Heminger Elementary School on 11th Street Southwest Sunday night. The burglars cut a whole in a fence and broke a window and tried to take a lot according to Captain Dan Zampelli. Zampelli tells AkronNewsNow officers found a box truck and a pick-up truck filled with items taken from the school, including air conditioners, fountains and metal cabinets.
Zampelli says detectives are trying to develop leads on who may have broken into the school and then fled before they could drive the items away.
The city of Akron plans to construct senior citizen housing units at the location. Heminger was closed in 2005.
