VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -  Over the weekend, both Valdosta Tech and Lowndes High School were broken into, and copper wire was stolen.

Valdosta Tech discovered that copper wire and a John Deere Gator were missing from the from Building 600 Monday morning. School officials say they are doing everything to prevent these incidents from happening again.

"The two things we're going to do is try to find a better place to put our copper wire. The other is to repair the fence and make it stronger and better," says Steve Jaramillo of Valdosta Tech Security.

Valdosta Tech officials believe several thousand dollars worth of copper was taken from the campus.
