D.C. police search for five suspects in elementary school burglary

Several pieces of computer equipment were stolen from a D.C. elementary school over the Thanksgiving holiday break, and police are looking for five suspects who allegedly were recorded inside the school by a security camera.

The burglary happened around 1 a.m. Friday at Brightwood Elementary School, in the 1300 block of Nicholson Street NW.

Police say they believe the suspects entered the school, which was closed Thursday and Friday for the Thanksgiving holiday, and carried out several pieces of computer equipment.

Police released this video of the suspects walking down a school hallway and carrying computer equipment:
