During Carlmont High School’s Thanksgiving break, one or more people broke into a social studies classroom and stole twenty-five Apple MacBooks and thirty Apple iPod touches; a total of $50,000 worth of equipment.

The social studies classroom teacher discovered the equipment missing and a window broken Monday morning, before students returned from Thanksgiving vacation.

Wells Fargo, headquarters located in San Francisco, CA, announced on Wednesday in a statement that they will contribute $5,000 to Carlmont High School to help replace the stolen electronic devices.

Wells Fargo’s regional president Wendy Haller said in the statement, “When we heard about what happened and how it impacts our local students, we wanted to step up and help.”

Apple, Inc., headquarters located in Cupertino, CA, is lending twelve MacBooks and twenty iPod touches to Carlmont High while the items remain missing.

“Carlmont High uses technology daily to engage students in the curriculum, which makes replacement of the computers critical,” Sequoia Union High School District Superintendent James Lianides said.

Carlmont High School Principle Raul Zamora said in an email sent out to Carlmont parents, “We are collaborating closely with Belmont Police Department officials who are conducting the investigation.”

Belmont Police and Carlmont High School are reviewing surveillance footage from the school’s security cameras. If you have any information regarding the theft, please contact the Belmont Police Department at (650) 595-7400.

People who wish to report anonymously can call the Belmont crime tip line at (650) 598-3000.
