Camera damaged, pot found at Rock Hill elementary school

October 18, 2013 

An $800 security camera was damaged this week at The Children’s School at Sylvia Circle in Rock Hill after an unknown suspect was on the building’s roof.

Rock Hill police responded to the school Tuesday after an assistant principal said a man was seen climbing down from the roof on Sunday, according to a police report.

A camera mounted to the school’s wall was damaged as the man descended, the administrator told police.

Surveillance video footage showed four unknown men on the school’s property during the time of the incident, including the man seen climbing down from the roof, the report states.

Officers are attempting to identify the men in the video.

Days later, the same administrator told police that someone at the school found a small plastic bag with about 3 grams of marijuana inside, according to a police report.

The drugs and the bag were weathered, the report states.

A school employee found the bag behind the school, near a door.

It’s unclear whether the two incidents are related.

The Children’s School is a public Montessori school in Rock Hill’s school district, serving students in grades K3 to 5th grade.
