Seven laptop computers disappeared from the Beye School library, 230 N. Cuyler Ave., over the summer, police reported Monday. The white, Apple Macbook computers were said to have been removed sometime after July 7, said Cmdr. LaDon Reynolds of the Oak Park police department.
"The theft was noticed at the beginning of school and the district began internal processes to verify the items were missing. Once they surmised the items were stolen, they contacted police," said Reynolds.
Police said there were no signs of forced entry at the school or library. The estimated value of the computers was$6,300.
"We'll utilize our resources outside the department to determine if they were sold in any capacity," said Reynolds. "We'll see if they were sold at a pawn shop or anything like that."
District 97 Communication Director Chris Jasculca said the school district does not comment on police investigations.
