Thieves take haul of computers from school

3:01 pm on 23 November 2009

Thieves have cleaned out a Blenheim school of many of its computers, going from room to room in a systematic burglary.

The police say the thieves broke into the Springlands school over the weekend and took nine laptop computers, four stand-alone computers and data projectors from classrooms.

Sergeant Michael Porter says it was a cold-hearted crime that will have a great impact on the school and its pupils.

The police are seeking information about any activity around the school on Friday night and early Saturday morning.
