ENCINITAS (CNS) - An investigation was underway Monday into the fourth burglary of an Encinitas-area elementary school in two weeks.
Deputies responded to a burglary alarm at Ocean Knoll Elementary School at 910 Melba Road around 11:50 p.m. Sunday, according to San Diego County sheriff's Sgt. Roberto Lopez.
Once there, deputies found a classroom window was broken and a storage cabinet inside the classroom had been opened, the sergeant said in a statement.
Investigators suspect thieves were looking to steal iPads, but no items of value were kept in the cabinet at the time of the burglary, Lopez said.
Late last Friday night, a similar burglary occurred at Skyline Elementary School. Authorities said the thieves in Friday's burglary got away with two dozen laptop computers.
