'Stolen' Beech H.S. trophies found inside classroom

Posted:
HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. -

The stolen Beech High School championship football trophies are back at the school.

Apparently, the trophies never left the school as officials first believed.

Investigators told News 2 that both trophies were discovered in closets inside a social studies classroom.

Authorities said a second video from inside the school was recently viewed, and shows the two masked suspects going into the room and remaining inside for up to 15 minutes.

They contacted the social studies teacher who checked the room and reportedly found both football championship trophies hidden in two separate closets.

When asked why the suspects wrote "H.H.S." on the trophy case with duct tape, an investigator stated, "To make everyone think someone from Hendersonville High School was responsible."

Detectives, however, say it appears the suspects were most likely Beech High School students, pulling a prank.

Officials said they still want to talk to the suspects, who have yet to be identified, before charges are considered.

Possible charges would be criminal trespassing.

Anyone who may have information on who is responsible for the apparent prank is urged to contact the Sumner County Sheriff's Office at 615-452-2616.
