COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - Police are looking for two suspects who robbed a local high school.

It happened Wednesday around 5:30 p.m. at Colerain High School.

Police say the suspects drove to the school in a large white van, entered the school and pried open three vending machines, gaining access to two, and took an undetermined amount of cash. The suspects then entered several classrooms, taking two transmitters, valued at $300 to $350 each, and used for hearing impaired students.

The suspects left the school around 6:15 p.m.

There was a school function when this offense took place so staff, students, and parents were in the building during the time of the offense.

The suspects were not at the school to attend the function but took advantage of the school being unlocked and busy during the school function.

Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers at 513-352-3040.
