— Police are investigating the theft of a trailer from outside Wake Forest High School that the school band uses to transport equipment to music competitions.

"You can't steal from the band," student Carly Gordon said Wednesday.

One of the band's two trailers was stolen sometime last week, but school officials said it's hard to pinpoint a time because fewer people are around during summer break. The school has turned its security videos over to Wake Forest police, hoping it will provide some clues.

"It's very upsetting to me. In fact, our entire school community, I'm sure, is responding the same way," Assistant Principal Dwayne Cook said.

With a competition coming up in September, Cheryl Vann, president of the band's booster club, said it will have to be a team effort to get the band there.

"It's what we use and what we need. Kids shouldn't have to deal with that," Vann said.

    Wow, I cannot believe the INSENSITIVITY of the comments about this story. The arts programs at all our public schools are suffering and a blow like this could kill this particular program. How do I know this? I was involved with the program for four years and my husband completely refurbished the trailer that was stolen with the help of some other band parents. I am outraged that someone felt the need to steal this trailer and pray that the band will be able to recover from this blow. Shame on you folks for making fun of this situation!

    Evidently you can

    ^HA this made me laugh! Did they not have their logo on it? OR as tmed1938 said why didn't they buy a lock to prevent this from happening? Ya know, they had the fireworks down there last wednesday, someone probably saw it and came back to get it...

    Its most likely in Durham and in pieces by now. We all know how crime ridden that county is.
