Burglars are now going to schools, albeit not to learn, as St George’s Primary School in Road Town was the second school burglarised recently.

According to reports, burglars entered the school sometime between February 14 and 15, 2021, and made off with a laptop from a kindergarten class and $5 petty cash.

The discovery of the crime was allegedly made by a teacher on February 15, 2021.

It is reported that the teacher observed that the door of the Grade One classroom, where the petty cash was kept, was damaged. Further checks revealed that the laptop was missing from the kindergarten classroom.

The school is said to be secured with CCTV cameras.
