Another township school was hit by electronics thieves, who got away with about 50 computers, police and district officials say.

Sometime in the overnight hours of Nov. 19, a window at Conerly Road Elementary School was broken, allowing entry for the thieves, said FTPD spokesman Lt. Phil Rizzo.

A total of 50 computers were taken from a laptop cart, said district spokeswoman Mary Clark. The computers were valued at $1,000 each, Rizzo said.

Clark said the incident happened sometime over the weekend of Nov. 18 and 19, and was discovered on Nov. 2o.

“No alarms were triggered and the police are investigating,” Clark said. “In consultation with the local Police Department, the district has promulgated new procedures throughout all district schools to assist in deterring future loss.”

Thieves have previously hit Hillcrest Elementary School twice since the 2017-18 school year began, stealing a number of electronic devices.

Rizzo said township detectives are investigating the incident.
