SYOSSET, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Someone broke into a Long Island school and stole a number of computers this week, police said.
As WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall reported, 22 Apple computers were stolen from the South Grove Elementary School in Syosset. The value of the loot was estimated at over $20,000.
Authorities said the thieves got into the school in the overnight hours by breaking a rear window.
A school employee discovered the break-in and called Nassau County detectives, according to a Newsday report.
Danny Terino, 10, told Miller he was upset.
“I think the school is really important to me, because I’ve been here for, like, a lot of my life, and the fact that someone broke in and stole property — I feel like that’s wrong,” Danny said. “That was not cool, and you are going to get caught, so watch out.”
Anyone with information was asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 244-TIPS.
