Computer equipment taken at Bluestone
SoVaNow.com / February 20, 2013Mecklenburg Sheriff Bobby Hawkins reported that two thefts occurred in the past week.
A teacher at Bluestone High School is the first to report having her personal computer equipment taken since Mecklenburg County changed its school policy to allow students to bring cell phones, laptops and other technology onto school grounds for use in the classroom.
Cpl. Jamie King said the unnamed teacher reported her personal Mini Ipad was removed from her classroom on or about Feb. 7. It is covered in pink and has the owner’s name engraved on the back.
Anyone with information is asked to contact King at 434-738-6171.
Deputy Tywanna Evans investigated a reported larceny at the 2200 block of Mt. Pleasant Road. Evans met with an employee of Malcolm Bailey, owner of the property, who claimed that on or about Feb. 11 someone removed two Fill Rite red fuel transfer pumps (12-volt) from fuel tanks and vandalized a John Deere bulldozer. He estimated damage and loss to be less than $1,000.
Hawkins asks that anyone with information about this or any other crime call Crime Solvers at 1-877-676-TIPS. Callers could receive up to a $1,000 reward, and also calls can be made anonymously.
