Police seek two in elementary school break-in

October 22, 2013

D.C. police are searching for two people caught on surveillance video breaking into an elementary school in Northeast Washington and stealing more than two dozen laptop computers, according to authorities.

The break-in occurred about 11:45 a.m. Oct. 6 at Maury Elementary School in the 1200 block of Constitution Avenue NE, in Capitol Hill.

Police did not say how the people got into the school. The video shows two young males wearing jeans and with their shirts over their heads walking down a hallway. One enters a room and emerges with a bag.

They’re both seen going into another room and wheeling a cart into the hall. The final video shows the males leaving the building with the cart, a duffle bag and another shopping bag.

D.C. police said 25 Dell laptop computers, each valued at $300 to $600, were taken.

Anyone with information is urged to call D.C. police at 202-727-9099 or text the department’s tip line at 50411. A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered to anyone with information that leads to an arrest and conviction in the case.
