MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. (KTLA) — About 60 iPads were stolen from a Manhattan Beach elementary school and police are hoping surveillance video will help them catch the suspects.
The burglary took place Sunday morning at Pacific Elementary School at 1200 Pacific Avenue.
The suspects, believed to be two men and a woman, reportedly broke into two fifth-grade classrooms after climbing over the school’s fence.
The thieves used bolt cutters to gain access to the iPads which were locked in a cart.
“They were housed in an iPad cart,” said Deputy Superintendent Rick Bagley.
“We can use it to charge them all, to do uploads, downloads, that kind of thing with them. So they were all in there. They were locked. One of the locks was cut off.”
The stolen iPads were donated by the PTA.
