As troubling as the theft itself -- it happened in a day, and at an hour, when school was in session

DAVID F. ASHTON - Children here, at Whitman Elementary School, were suddenly scrambling for pencils and paper, after a thief made off with their classrooms iPads. Robbing school children of their ability to learn using computer technology apparently isn't beneath the thief who made off with a handful of devices on the afternoon of October 30.

"At 2:48 p.m. that afternoon, a staff member at Whitman Elementary School reported a theft of multiple Apple iPads from a classroom inside the school," confirmed Portland Police Bureau (PPB) Public Information Officer Sgt. Chris Burley.

School officials are still reviewing surveillance footage, and a PPB School Resource Office also came by to investigate the theft.

"As yet, there is no suspect description," Burley said.
