Power outage stops alarm from sounding during school burglary

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis police officers are investigating a school break-in that happened during a power outage.

School security noticed a boiler room door was open at Hamilton Elementary School around midnight Sunday night, into Monday morning.

When police arrived, they discovered a number of rooms were unlocked, including the administration office door and principal's office.

Police said the alarm didn't sound when the break-in happened, because the power was out.

It's unclear if anything was stolen at this time.
