BRONXVILLE, N.Y. - Bronxville School District officials are evaluating their security protocols after a man snuck into the high school and stole several personal electronic devices that belonged to faculty members.

During a review of surveillance cameras on Friday, Jan. 8, security discovered that two days earlier, an unknown person entered the building through the Meadow Avenue entrance shortly after 1 p.m., exiting approximately three minutes later.

Following a thorough review of the tape, police identified a suspect and arrested him at approximately 5 p.m. on Friday. On Monday, Superintendent David Quattrone alerted parents that they would be reviewing all security protocols.

“Today, the school administration conducted an after action review of this incident and addressed a number of related issues concerning camera upgrades, training, communication and the failure to stop an unknown person at the school entrance,” he said.

“We have launched a number of steps to improve infrastructure and take corrective measures. We are very concerned that this incident occurred, and we remain committed to closing any gaps in our procedure.”
