After a Nassau County School Board truck is found on fire north of Callahan, investigators are led to even more crime.
Sheriff Bill Leeper tells WOKV they believe at this time that the burned truck located on Musselwight Road was set on fire intentionally. When they learned it belonged to the School Board they returned to the lot where it had been parked.
“There were some other vehicles inside of the facility that apparently had been broken into as well,” Leeper says.
He says investigators found 2-3 more vehicles which had apparently been broken into, although it’s unclear if anything was taken from them.
“I don’t know if they were looking for car keys or any valuables in those vehicles,” he says.
Leeper says it’s not clear at this point whether there were keys left in the car which was stolen and later set on fire. He does believe the break-ins, theft and apparent arson are all related.
Investigators found footprints at the crime scene which are being investigated. The Sheriff’s Office is looking in to the break-ins while the State Fire Marshal investigates the fire.
