Police are hunting for the burglar who broke into a West Philadelphia charter school last month and stole a safe containing $17,000.
The burglary happened Nov. 27 at the West Philadelphia Achievement Charter School on Callowhill Street near 67th, said Officer Jillian Russell, a police spokeswoman. The burglar took the safe from the school office.
No one answered the phone at the elementary school today - a snow day for area schools.
But according to 6ABC News, the money was the proceeds of candy sales and other fundraisers the school's 600 students have held this year.
