FAIRFIELD — Thirty iPads were stolen last month from Sem Yeto High School and the thieves left no sign of forced entry into the building.
School officials were alerted the morning of Sept. 18 of the burglary that occurred the night before. According to Lt. Greg Hurlbut, the room was locked at 11 p.m. Sept. 17 and the burglary was noticed at 7 a.m. the next day.
The iPads were used by the Bridge to Success program and were stored in a locked cart, which was pried open, Hurlbut said. He said there was no damage to the classroom where they were stored, but said that doesn’t necessarily mean it was an inside job.
