Nine iPads Stolen from Elementary School

(Updated at 3:25 p.m.) Arlington County Police are investigating the theft of iPads from an elementary school last week.

A total of nine Apple iPads were stolen from Ashlawn Elementary School. School officials sent an email to parents on Friday informing them of the theft.

“We realized the iPads were missing early this morning and took immediate action to try to locate the devices,” the email said. “The police and the central office have been notified and the matter is currently under investigation. Please be assured that Ashlawn has taken multiple measures to keep the technology in our building secure. We are, however, considering additional ways to keep our equipment secure while maintaining the ease of access to staff and students.”

The iPads were stolen between Feb. 15 and 16, according to Arlington County Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck. Each iPad was valued at between $499 and $599. Arlington Police, the school system and an ACPD school resource officer are continuing to investigate the thefts.

iPads are used in Arlington Public Schools for various instructional purposes.
