SPOKANE — Most of the 58 laptop computers stolen from an elementary school in the Spokane suburb of Mead have been recovered, thanks to a deputy’s sleuthing and the mother of three young boys.
Spokane County sheriff’s Deputy Jeff Rogers was investigating the $69,000 burglary discovered Tuesday at Evergreen Elementary when he sifted through service calls from the night before. He found a call about children missing from a home near the school.
Rogers interviewed the three boys — ages 8, 14 and 15 — and they denied knowing anything about the theft.
KXLY-TV reports the boys’ mother called him back to the home and this time the boys confessed to stealing the computers.
The sheriff’s office said Wednesday that 52 of the 58 have been recovered. Deputies are working to find the other six; apparently there’s one more suspect.
