Over $15K in iPads, 2 projectors stolen from Westview HS

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- Thirty-nine iPads and 2 classroom projectors, valued collectively at over $15,000, were stolen in a burglary at Westview High School over the weekend, according to Washington County Deputies. 

Three portables, that housed the stolen items, were burglarized on Saturday, one of which was "forcibly entered through a locked window," deputies said. "Who honestly does that?"

"I mean, it's like, who steals from a high school that kids are learning from?" said Harriet Kubalsky, a sophomore at the school. 

The iPads, valued at over $400 each, were disabled remotely, according to The Beaverton School District. 

Maureen Wheeler said the burglary definitely hurts financially. 

"We're watching all our nickels and dimes these days so we can't afford to really be doing this," said Wheeler, "and we don't like to see this happen."

Kubalsky said she was shocked to hear someone had broke into the school. She thought no one would ever rob Westview.

"And now they're gone," Kubalsky  said of the technology. "It's an opportunity taken away from us."

No one has been arrested. 

Deputies are asking anyone with information to call 503.629.0111.
