John Carroll students claim $18,000 in items was stolen from team bus

When the John Carroll soccer team's bus was burglarized during a match at Archbishop Curley earlier this month, nine students claimed to have lost more than $18,000 in stolen laptops, cellphones, clothes, school supplies and other belongings, according to an itemized police report.

The bus was not locked when the burglary occurred during the 4 p.m. game on Oct. 10 at Curley, on Sinclair Lane and Erdman Avenue in East Baltimore, police said. A Curley school security officer told police there were no surveillance cameras in the area.

The thief or thieves took "everything that was left on the bus," John Carroll Principal Madelyn Ball said.

She said she received a call about the incident Monday from Curley's principal.

"It was really a shame, it really is," Ball said. "We should be able to go to Catholic schools and rely on the fact that something like this would not happen, but in today's world it can happen anywhere."

Ball said students were working with John Carroll's business office to determine the dollar value of items taken from each student, including school computers. She said athletes typically bring their belongings to away games so they can ride home with their parents afterward.

"We're just dealing with getting replacements for the kids at this point and working closely with the families to make sure that they're compensated correctly," she said.
