Burglar takes laptops from Logos Charter School

Twenty-three laptop computers and other items were stolen during a weekend burglary at a Medford charter school and police want the public to be wary of anyone offering cheap deals on computers.

The laptops, as well as a computer monitor and a microscope, were discovered missing about 9 this morning from the Logos Charter School on the 400 block of Earhart Street, Medford police reported.

An unknown burglar or burglars apparently broke a window to enter the school, making off with $14,000 worth of equipment, police said. (Update: A details was removed from this story for security reasons.)

"School officials were last on scene at 4 p.m. Saturday and everything was fine, so it happened sometime between then and 9 a.m. this morning," Medford police Lt. Mike Budreau says.

The laptops were Asus, Acer and Toshiba brands, Budreau says.

"Obviously, no one needs 23 laptops," Budreau says. "Most likely the suspect will try to off-load them by selling them, trading them or putting them up on Craigslist. So the public should be wary of someone offering a super-good deal on a laptop."

Anyone with information on the case or the laptops is urged to call Medford police Detective Tony Young at 541-774-2230.
