GLOCESTER – After three inci- dents resulting in stolen vehicles from Glocester residents, Harmony Hill School President Eric James said the school will evaluate and implement new policies and procedures to pro- tect students and the community.

According to DelPrete, two run- aways allegedly broke into a home near the school, stealing two sets of keys and two vehicles on July 5 at 5:15 a.m. Another vehicle was stolen in a separate incident, also by some- one from the school, DelPrete said.
