JACKSON, Mich. (AP) - A 36-year-old substitute teacher has pleaded guilty in the attempted theft of violins from a southern Michigan school.

The Jackson Citizen Patriot reports (https://bit.ly/2duzr2S ) Tuesday that Benjamin Ross will be sentenced Nov. 2 in Jackson County Circuit Court on a larceny from a building charge.

Three violins were taken March 30 from Jackson’s Middle School at Parkside and stashed in a bush outside the building.

An orchestra student told the school’s principal that a teacher had removed several violins from a classroom. Surveillance video showed the violins being taken from the building and hidden in the bush.

School officials found the violins and called police.
