Police say that a custodian at Sem Yeto Continuation School in Fairfield was tied up and threatened with death as two men burglarized the place.
A little before 10 p.m. Wednesday, a 50-year-old custodian was working the night shift at the school. He was walking from one building to another when two men approached him.
One of the men had a handgun and ordered the custodian to lie on the ground, or else he would kill him.
The custodian found out what the two were after – the school’s iPads. The suspects bound the custodian’s hands with duct tape, also taping him to the desk, as they demanded to know where the iPads were held.
The suspect eventually made off with 40 of the school’s iPads.
Somehow, the custodian was able to partially free his hands and call police. Officers responding to the scene found the custodian still taped to the desk.
Police note that this is the third time the school’s iPads were targeted in the past four months.
