Mill Creek schools deal with stolen batteries

CLAYTON — School was cancelled Monday morning for Mill Creek students. Not because of the weather or a water main break – but because batteries were stolen out of the district school buses.

The security provider for the Mill Creek Community School Corporation alerted the Hendricks County Sheriff’s Department that all the buses at the bus garage had been vandalized. This rendered the transportation department unable to run the regularly schedule bus routes.

It is estimated that the vandalism and burglary was committed about 1 a.m. Monday morning. Video surveillance has provided evidence and is aiding in the investigation.

“The school corporation is working with the Hendricks County Sheriff’s Department and the security provider in an ongoing investigation,” said superintendent Jill Jay, in a press release. “The Mill Creek School Corporation would like to thank all the supportive parents and staff members who assisted in acting in a timely and cooperative manner.”

The batteries stolen vary in weight from 70 to 186 pounds. It appears that at least two vehicles were involved in the incident. There were 17 stolen batteries.

Sergeant Scott Larsen of the investigations division of the sheriff’s department has released photos of two vehicles that may have been involved with the incident. One vehicle has already been cleared of any involvement.  A silver passenger vehicle is still believed to have been involved.


Those who have information are asked to call 745-4213.
