Guam - Vandals managed to break into J.Q. San Miguel Elementary School in Toto and walked away with the students' Thanksgiving lunch, which was supposed to be prepared for them on Wednesday. Acting Principal Rosella Campos says the individuals broke into the school's cafeteria and took off with two turkeys, one pound of steam boat (meat), three roasting pans, five large spoons and one large pot.

In addition, she says at least one teacher noted that donated canned goods were also missing from the classroom. "I can't believe it. Thinking how could other people steal from the schools and they know how important it is for students to have a special lunch, especially Thanksgiving," she said.

George Washington High School and St. Francis Catholic School in Yona were also broken into over the weekend.  Anyone with information is asked to contact the Guam Police Department at 472-8911 or Guam Crimestoppers at 477-HELP (4357).
