ROCK FALLS – Rock Falls police are investigating a break-in that happened at Rock Falls High School over the weekend.

Shortly before 6 a.m. Sunday, police responded to an active alarm at the high school. When they arrived, they discovered a door window had been broken on the mechanic's room door on the north side of the building.

Four windows total were damaged – two on the north side of the building and two interior room windows, according to a news release.

Police have no suspects, but are examining security footage from the school. They also took fingerprints and samples from blood found on glass fragments.

Rock Falls schools are on spring break, but when teachers return, police say they'll do a thorough inventory of their rooms to see what, if anything, was taken.
