IPads stolen from school
UWCHLAN >> Twelve iPads were reported stolen from Uwchlan Hills Elementary School at 50 Peck Road on Oct. 6.
Uwchlan police said on Monday that school personnel filed a report at about 7 a.m. last Thursday when the iPads were missing. However, police believe that the theft occurred about 1 or 2 a.m. that Thursday. Police said there was a forced entry into the building. Police believe that the suspect entered that room, took the iPads valued at $100 each and left the building.
Police said they are actively investigating the case and do not believe any other items were stolen. The iPads were a few years old. Police said this was an isolated incident and no one was in danger as the building was unoccupied at the time.
Downingtown Area School District officials said that they had planned to replace those iPads in the summer of 2017, but are now in the process of replacing those iPads sooner. The following report was released from the Kennett Township Police Department.
On Sept. 15, and Sept. 16, Kennett Township police investigated two residential burglaries that occurred in the 600 block of Cope Road.
The burglaries were discovered when the victim noticed a suspicious withdraw from a Fulton Bank account and missing property from their residence.
On Sept. 16, three men — James Dawson, 39, of Coatesville, Justin Saunders, 39, of Christiana, and Charles Francis, 64, of Coatesville — attempted to cash a check

Investigation by the Kennett Township police and the Pennsylvania State Police led to the arrest of all three for burglary and theft related crimes.
Saunders was found to be in possession of the victim’s
checkbook at the time of the arrest as well as several tools from the victim’s shed. They are currently being held at George W. Hill Correctional Facility in Delaware County pending extradition to Chester County.
