Thousands of dollars worth of student instruments are missing from a Fairfield High School following a weekend burglary.

Other schools and a local business are helping out. 

The Armijo Super Band performed this past fall at an annual review held in Santa Cruz.

The High School students are now in the process of preparing for spring competitions held next month.

But sometime between last Friday night and early Monday morning, several of their instruments were stolen from the school music room.

"This is probably one of the more significant losses for any burglary that I can think of in recent history," says Sergeant Jeff Osgood with the Fairfield Police Department.

He also says school robberies are rare, especially ones like this.

Some of the missing instruments were owned by students, while others are property of the Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District.

Spokeswoman Sheila McCabe says the District is working to help the affected students.

"It's a fabulous band and we're not going to let this impact their season, we're not going to let this impact their instruction," says McCabe.

She also says neighboring schools are loaning any available instruments they can, while a local company, Gordon's Music and Sound, is also stepping up to help.

Music in the radio piece was pulled from the video below.
