Norwalk Police Sgt. James Fulton said the theft took place in the locker room usually used by game officials. The door was left unlocked at the time of the incident.
“It may have gotten left unlocked longer than it was supposed to,” he added.
Fulton was unable to give an exact number for overall missing funds, however, he said one student was missing several gift cards along with approximately $60.
“Several players had their lockers entered and had money taken out of their wallets,” he said.
The St. Paul football team was at Frost-Kalnow Stadium for a game against the Tiffin Calvert Senecas at the time of the incident. The initial police report was filed when the team returned to Whitney Field at 10:50 p.m.
Norwalk Catholic Schools President Dennis Doughty said he was out of town at the time of the incident, but confirmed that some students were affected by the break-in.
“There are a lot of suspects,” Fulton said. “That’s all we can say about it at this point.”
