16 iPads stolen from Jonesboro High School

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Sometime during the summer break, a bad apple stole more than a dozen iPads from a Jonesboro High School classroom.

According to the police report, 16 Apple iPad 2 tablets valued at $6,168 were stolen from a locked storage closet in art instructor David Leggett's classroom.

Leggett said the theft occurred sometime between June 9 and August 7.

Officer Brian Sawyer stated in his report there was “no damage to the lock or door…it is presumed the suspect had access to a key.”

Leggett told police he had received a phone call from a man in Piedmont, MO, who claimed he had bought an iPad belonging to the school from a Jonesboro woman.

Leggett claimed the woman told the man she got the computer from a named suspect in Jonesboro.
