Local High School Suffers Performing Arts Theft

An Orange County high school’s biggest theatre production in over a decade almost came to a halt after two speakers and nine wireless microphones worth over $7,000 were stolen from a locked moving truck less than a week before the show. Katella High School’s performance art equipment was borrowed from Cypress High, and was discovered missing when the school’s drama director arrived at the Anaheim campus on the morning of September 26, 2015.

Although, the theft was of considerable value, the items will not be covered by insurance because of the district policy for a $10,000 minimum for theft. The theft has been reported to the local authorities.

If you have been charged with theft, call an experienced criminal defense attorney right away to assist you.

California’s receiving stolen property law, Penal Code 496, imposes criminal penalties on those who purchase, receive, conceal, sell, or withhold from the owner, any property that they know has been stolen.
