47 Laptops Stolen From Elementary School In Walnut

WALNUT (AP) — Thieves stole 47 laptop computers from an elementary school in southeast Los Angeles County.

KNX 1070’s Pete Demetriou reports.

Sheriff’s investigators say the Apple Mac Book laptops were stolen around 3 a.m. Thursday from C.J. Morris School in the community of Walnut.

The laptops are valued at $61,000.

Lt. John Saleeby says no one has been arrested and investigators are asking for the public’s help, saying the thefts are an enormous loss for the school.

It was the second recent break-in at the school. Four LCD projectors valued at $1,000 were stolen during spring break.

Principal Susan Arzola says a fifth LCD projector was taken during Thursday’s thefts.
