Thieves have boken into a local school in Hedge End and stolen 16 computers despite signs warning that the premises are guarded.
The sought after Apple iMacs disappeared overnight between Thursday October 7 and Friday October 8 after offenders forced entry into Wildern School in Wildern Lane and took the computers valued at approximately £12,500.
PC Jason Gore said: “I would like to hear from anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area of Wildern School during the evening of October 7 or the early hours of October 8.
“It is likely that more than one person was involved in this crime and that a large vehicle was needed to transport the computers.
“This crime has affected the pupils at the school as two of their classrooms are now out of action while extensive repairs are carried out to the windows and the equipment is replaced.”
The school has signs on the perimeter warning that the premises are protected by Eagle Hobourne a Bournemouth based security company – the campus is also covered by cctv cameras.
Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Jason Gore at Eastleigh police station on 101. Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
