Dance students at the Tweed River High School will get a shock today when they arrive to see their classroom ransacked, after intruders broke into the school over the weekend.
Police say that at about 2.15am last Saturday, a security guard was conducting regular patrols of the school at Tweed Heads South, when he saw four mountain bikes at the rear of the school grounds next to the boundary fence.
When police arrived they say they discovered that a garage roller door had been kicked in and damaged.
Police say that the unknown trespassers were then able to open a door from the inside allowing access to a dance studio where they rummaged through the dance studio equipment containers, scattering school dance uniforms around the area.
Other damage included a wooden cabinet with glass doors that had been smashed and the cabinet had been rummaged through.
Police were unable to identify what has been stolen, however they say this process will commence when school resumes today (Monday 29 July).
The four bicycles have been seized by police. The crime scene will be tested for fingerprints and DNA.
