Cov­ing­ton Po­lice continue to in­ves­ti­gate a bur­glary where more than $10,000 worth of com­put­ers were re­ported stolen from Peachtree Academy.

Ac­cord­ing to a re­port from the Cov­ing­ton Po­lice Depart­ment, po­lice re­sponded to the school lo­cated U.S. High­way 278 on Mon­day morn­ing around 6 a.m.

An of­fi­cer spoke to the prin­ci­pal who said when he ar­rived at the school that morn­ing, he no­ticed the west end left door to the sec­ond build­ing was open.

When po­lice checked the room, they dis­cov­ered that some­one had taken 16 Len­ovo Think- Cen­tre lap­top com­put­ers from the com­puter lab.

In ad­di­tion, some­one also went into the prin­ci­pal’s of­fice and stole an­other Len­ovo ThinkCen­tre lap­top com­puter from the sec­re­tary’s desk, and an older model of a Len­ovo ThinkCen­tre com­puter from the prin­ci­pal’s desk. The es­ti­mated value of the stolen com­put­ers is $10,350.

Po­lice said there was no sign of forced en­try. The re­port also noted that the wiring from the com­put­ers ap­peared to be cut. The es­ti­mated cost of dam­ages to the cut wires was un­known at the time of the re­port. CPD Capt. Ken Mal­com said there are no leads at this time. No fur­ther in­for­ma­tion was re­leased about the bur­glary.
