The Pike County Sheriff’s Department responded early Friday morning to a report of two burglaries in Goshen.

Pike County Sheriff Russell Thomas said he believes the incidences are related.

At Goshen High School, sheriff’s deputies found entry was made to the school through the guidance counselor’s office when a suspect removed a window pane, Thomas said.

From the office, access was gained to the book keeper’s office when the door was kicked in. He said about $30 in change was taken from a desk drawer.

"It appears the suspect(s) went to the main office and used a trophy from the hall to break glass in the door," Thomas said. "They opened the door and entered the main office."

Taken from the main office were four military-style flashlights, a partial roll of postage stamps and a tape backup from a computer, Thomas said.

The Sheriff’s Department is also investigating a similar incident at the Circle S Diner, which is located across from Goshen High School.

"Entry was gained through the front door by using a tool to pry open the lock," Thomas said.

Reported missing are a Quasar 27-inch color television and an AT&T cordless telephone.

Anyone with information about these incidences is asked to call the Sheriff’s Department at 566-4360 or the Secret Witness Line at 566-4347.

A cash reward is being offered for information in these cases.
