The burglary happened Sunday evening. Two dozen iPads have been stolen from other local schools in the past month.

Updated at 6 p.m. Monday.

Five iPads were stolen at Ocean Knoll Elementary School late Sunday, according to the Encinitas Union School District. 

Initial reports stated that items were not stolen. However, authorities discovered the iPads missing after a thorough investigation, according to the District's Gerry Devitt.

Burglars broke through a fence and window, according to Sgt. Roberto Lopez.

Last month, burglars stole a dozen iPads from Cardiff Elementary School and another dozen from Ada Harris Elementary School.  On Friday night, 24 Apple laptop computers were stolen from Skyline Elementary School in Solana Beach:

  • Burglar Steals 12 iPads from Cardiff Elementary Classroom
  • Another Dozen School iPads Stolen in Cardiff

This I just sick I go to that school and its just gotten absolutely out of control. First Cardiff, then Ada Harris a friend of my family was burgulurized and her IPAD and jewelry were stolen no more than that. SOUND FAMILIAR she lives down the street from this school. The must have absolutely no heart at all if I'm eleven and know this is wrong the must know nothing. I hope they know we use those for educational uses. I don't speak just for ocean knoll I speak for Cardiff and Ada Harris. I still can not believe some one has a heart cruell enough to do this.

So true Bibi! I am an ocean knoll parent and 5 iPads were indeed stolen from a second grade class. All their projects - GONE and kids and teacher broken hearted that someone would continue to take resources away from children. I really hope they can be stopped before this happens anywhere else. It is devastating.

Between the potential gun violence and these recent burglaries, I think it's time we seriously step up security at our schools. This is crazy!!! :(
