ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -- School fundraiser was money stolen over the weekend-and the thief is still unknown.

Before leaving for the weekend on Friday, March 13, Librarian Pamela Aho of Rosemont Elementary locked a desk drawer where she keeps fundraiser money, including the funds of a pencil-selling fundraiser.

When she returned to work Monday morning, the locked drawer appeared to have been forced open, with the lock's latch bent and surrounding desk area broken.

Missing from the drawer was a bag containing the money for the pencil fundraiser, and additional change from a book fair. No fingerprints or other evidence were found at the scene to identify a culprit. There were no signs that anybody broke into the school building.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS (8477).
