Tuesday 11/24/2015 Report From Collinsville Public Schools: We have had two couches, a big-screen TV, and an X-Box taken from the Athletic Fieldhouse located next to the ESC. It belongs to the Varsity Boys basketball program and was being stored there. It was there a week ago this past Sunday but is now gone. We have involved the police and after the initial investigation, they found no signs of forcible entry to the building and feel that it would have taken at least two people with a truck and possibly a trailer. If you have any information at all regarding this, please contact the Collinsville police (and you may remain anonymous). At this time, with a report being made, these items are considered "stolen property".
