FILLMORE : Theft of Equipment Challenges Students

August 28, 1994|GREG RIPPEE

A score of video production students at Fillmore High School have been learning this week that the show must go on.

Despite the theft of about $16,500 in video equipment, the 20 to 25 students enrolled in the class at Fillmore Middle School on Shields Drive "have been making do," said assistant Supt. Jane Kampbell.

Ventura County Sheriff's Deputy Rick Barber said the equipment--two studio cameras, two field cameras, tripods, cables and microphones--was reported stolen Wednesday from a room at the middle school used by students of the adjacent high school. A window had been smashed.

Kampbell said it appeared that the thieves, who used a hacksaw to remove the studio cameras from their stands, knew where the equipment was.
