KAPAA, Hawaii – Kauai police are investigating the theft of $20,000 worth of cameras and computers from Kapaa Elementary School during the winter break.
Police said Monday 12 white MacBook laptop computers and 20 black Kindle tablets are missing from one of the classrooms. Several video and digital cameras and an InFocus projector were also stolen.
The classroom didn't show any sign of forced entry. But police say but the metal cabinets where the items were being stored appear to have been pried open.
The electronics were stolen sometime between Dec. 28 and Jan. 3.
Assistant Chief Roy Asher says the suspects will likely try to sell the electronics on the street or the Internet. He asks anyone with information on the case to contact Kauai police.
