Laptops, Kindles stolen from Kauai elementary school classroom

KAPAA, KAUAI (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Several Kapa‘a Elementary School students are going without computers following a theft that occurred over the winter break.

Sometime between Dec. 28 and Jan. 3, roughly $20,000 in electronics including: 12 white MacBook laptop computers; 20 black Kindles; an InFocus projector; and several video and digital cameras, were stolen from one of the classrooms.

There were no reported signs of forced entry in the room, but the metal cabinets where the items were located appear to have been pried open.

Police are asking for the public's help in locating the person(s) responsible for stealing the electronics. "We're alerting the public of the incident as the suspects are likely to try and sell the items on the street or on the internet," stated Assistant Chief Roy Asher of the Investigative Services Bureau. "If you feel you have information that could be helpful to this case, please contact us."

Anyone with information is urged to call Police Dispatch at 241-1711 or CrimeStoppers, 241-1887.
