Newton Abbot primary school has iPads stolen during school holiday
4:54pm Friday 6th September 2013 in Devon
Police in Newton Abbot are investigating the theft of around 21 Apple iPads from the Ilsington C of E Primary School. The theft is believed to have to have taken place during the school holidays – sometime between 26 July and 2 September.
The total value of these popular items is over £5,200. The items were silver in colour and all had a black case. Each iPad was valued at £250.
PC Gareth Beynon investigating said: “This is not just a theft from the school but a theft against the community – as a result of this many local young children who attend this school will be denied the learning opportunities that these tablet devices offer.
“I would like to hear from anyone who has been recently offered one of these items second hand where its origins are not confidently known.”
If anyone has any information about this incident please call 101 and quote reference JA/13/777, alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
