IPads Stolen At Brevard Academy
For students at Brevard Academy, some lessons are learned the hard way.
School Director Tony Helton says Friday night, a thief broke in and stole thousands of dollars worth of computer equipment.
"They entered the building through these windows," Helton points out. "As you can see the locks were broken off."
11 Mini Ipads and two laptops were taken.
"It's lost trust, it's a tough time for everybody," Helton says. "But to steal from a school, holy goodness!"
Second grader Bryce Linden's Ipod Touch was also stolen after he left it in class.
"I left it right on that desk over there, and put it under there and it's not there," Bryce tells News 13.
When asked what he'd tell whoever took his Ipod Touch, Bryce was direct.
"Probably, can I have it back?... I'd probably put em in jail for about five years, he said, before reducing the sentence. One."
Shelton says the sense of loss is worth far more than just thousands of dollars worth of electronics. He says its about innocence lost.
"We need to protect our young people and let them keep their innocence as long as they can," Shelton says.
