Police investigate campus break-in

Hailey incident possibly related to earlier forced entries

    Hailey police are investigating a break-in that occurred early Sunday morning at the Community Campus on Fox Acres Road in Hailey.
    Police Lt. Steve England said Monday that access to the building was made by breaking a window at the fitness center of the Blaine County Recreation District, one of the building’s tenants.
    England said the building wasn’t vandalized and that “it appears they tried to get money from a cash box.” However, England said, the cash box didn’t have any money in it.
    “It appears that they were attempting to commit a burglary and they got scared off, by possibly an alarm,” he said.
    England said police are investigating the possibility that the break-in may be related to forced-entry break-ins last January at the Community Campus and nearby Wood River High School.
    England said there was most likely only one culprit.
    “We’re just following up on a couple of leads,” he said.
    The Community Campus is owned by the Blaine County School District.
