KETTERING, Ohio (WDTN) – The Kettering Alter Knights were targeted by thieves during a basketball game.

While the team was playing Cincinnati Purcell Marian Tuesday night, someone was stealing property from their locker room.

Cell phones, iPads, a wallet, credit cards and a Macbook Pro were swiped, all worth thousands of dollars.

School officials say locker roooms are usually secure, but because it was a public game, doors to the school were left unlocked.

Alter’s principal told WLWT-TV, “This can happen anywhere you go. Unfortunately, there was a theft, but it’s not Purcell Marian’s fault in any way, shape or form,” said Lourdes Lambert, Kettering Alter principal.

Investigators are reviewing surveillance cameras posted at the school’s entrances, but so far no arrests. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
