IPads stolen from school

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - LOCAL NEWS - Staff Re­port

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

at a Ful­ton Bank in Delaware County. The bank alerted the Penn­syl­va­nia State Po­lice of the fraud­u­lent


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.
