Albany -- We've told you about all the recent burglaries at businesses and homes. The latest target is an Albany school.   Administrators say students are the ones who will suffer.  

Tuesday night, thieves hit Monroe High School. They stole as much as two-thousand dollars worth of plants, and items such as pressure washers from the campus greenhouse. Teachers say this is a costly setback to the school's horticulture program.

"It sets us way back in time to prepare for the spring plant sale," said Horticulture teacher Stephanie Summerlin.  "Right now we have moved just about all of our plants inside, just to prevent them from being stolen because it takes money out of our budget to be able to provide these plants and the kids also have projects in there."

Authorities reviewed surveillance videotape which shows two men taking the goods over a four hour period Tuesday night. Monroe High School is offering a reward for information in this crime.
