STRATFORD - Stratford Academy is increasing security after a woman was able to walk in during the day and steal wallets and cell phones.

Police say the woman pushing a stroller came in Monday claiming she was considering enrolling her daughter in the school.

Once inside, police say she entered several classrooms and stole wallets and cell phones.

Police say they do have a person of interest in the case and that it may be connected to similar thefts at two other schools in the past month.
