CARDIFF-BY-THE-SEA (CNS) - A dozen iPad tablets were taken by a pair of burglars who broke into a Cardiff Elementary School classroom Sunday, deputies said.
A burglar alarm went off at 3:10 a.m. and Encinitas deputies were sent to Cardiff Elementary School at 1888 Montgomery Ave., said San Diego Sheriff's Sgt. Joe Passalacqua.
While searching the premises with police dogs, the deputies discovered the school's perimeter fence "had been compromised" and that two classrooms had broken windows, said Passalacqua.
"The suspects entered one of the classrooms, broke off the lock on a storage cabinet, and stole a dozen iPad tablets," said Passalacqua.
The total loss was estimated at $6,360, Passalacqua said.
The Encinitas detective unit was investigating.
