They then concealed them in pupil’s PE bags before leaving.

The laptops are Compaq Presario Cq56.

Theft is considered to be a crime and the consequences to these are found here given by Act 1968.

A police officer said: “These laptops were to be used by school children and their theft has deprived them of valuable learning tools.

“In the current climate primary schools can ill-afford to have valuable property stolen in this way and I am making a direct appeal to anyone who is offered one of these computers in suspicious circumstances – you need to call the police straight away.

“You might think you are getting a bargain, when in actual fact you would be turning a blind eye to a really cynical theft.”
