Another break-in occurs at Solana Santa Fe School in Rancho Santa Fe

By R. Stickney, NBC News San Diego

Solana Santa Fe Elementary School was targeted by thieves for the second time in three weeks.

San Diego County sheriff’s deputies arrived at Solana Santa Fe School in Rancho Santa Fe (Fairbanks Ranch area) around 12:30 a.m. on Aug. 2.

When deputies arrived at the school on El Apajo there were signs of a break-in but deputies didn’t find any suspects.

They called in a K-9 unit to search the area with no results.

It’s not known what was taken or the amount of the loss, deputies said.

On July 11, equipment was stolen from the same school.

Friday’s incident marks the fifth in a string of school burglaries in the area in five weeks.

Deputies say the investigation is ongoing and it’s not known if the previous burglaries are related.

Sage Canyon School on Harvest Run Drive in Carmel Valley was burglarized Tuesday, July 30. Officials did not reveal what was stolen.

Rancho Diegueno Country School at 15663 Circo Diegueno Road in Del Mar was burglarized between July 1 to 4. Apple computers were taken officials, said.

Someone broke into Ocean Air Elementary School at 11444 Canter Heights Drive in Carmel Valley on July 8 and stole Apple computers, according to investigators.

In 2012, six schools in North County were targeted in similar burglaries, where thieves broke through windows and stole iPads.

The suspects – who were part of a gang – were eventually captured and arrested.
