Sometime during the early hours on Sunday March 2, 2014, the Denair High School Ag Shop was burglarized. The thieves, believed to be two adult males, entered the area by cutting a lock off of a back gate. They then cut the lock off of a storage shed and stole a portable Lincoln Electric Ranger 250 GXT portable welding unit (red in color), a custom fabricated trailer that DHS students made (black frame with purple plywood), a gas welding torch with hoses and valves, 2 grey welding helmets, 1 large yellow grinder, 1 red small grinder, a box of 7018 welding rod, 1 red rototiller, 1 oxygen tank, and 1 acetylene tank. To exit the premises, the thieves used bolt cutters to cut a link off of a very large chain that was used to secure the entrance/exit gates.
The loss to the Ag program is estimated to be roughly $15,000. If you have any information you are encouraged to call the high school office at 632-9911 or email Mr. Delworth at email@example.com.
