Nassau School Board truck torched, others broken into

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.

  • A giant 9-foot long beehive with some 50,000 bees inside was discovered under the eaves and in the attic of a guest house on a property in Tucson, Arizona. >> Read more trending news Homeowner Cindy Stewart called in bee experts to help relocate the massive hive of Africanized honey bees last week, according to KOLD-TV. Stewart said trying to handle the colony by herself seemed risky. 'They're very aggressive, and they can sting you more than once,' she told KOLD. Stewart got help from American Bee Control’s Greg Denker, who said it took at least a year for a hive to grown that big. 'This is a bee hive that has been undisturbed by people for a long time, so it's grown very large,” Denker said.
