Police Searching for Atlanta School Computer Thieves

Atlanta police are looking for a group of people they suspect broke into a southwest Atlanta middle school and stole several computers.

According to 11 Alive, four people broke into Brown Middle School on Peeples Street on Aug. 17 by smashing the glass on a basement door. Once inside the basement, the quartet stole several computers; although an accurate count has yet to be performed, a police report states that a school security officer counted roughly 100 empty slots where computers used to be.

The officer was walking his beat on the third floor of the school when he looked out a window and saw computer carts on the sidewalk below, which prompted him to investigate the situation and discover the stolen equipment.

Police have surveillance video which shows four black men in their 20s inside the school with computer parts at the time of the break-in.

If you have any information that can help police arrest and convict the people responsible for the theft, please contact Crime Stoppers Greater Atlanta by calling 404-577-TIPS (8477), texting “CSA Tip” to CRIMES (274637), or by submitting a tip online. All tips can be made anonymously.
