All 185 learner tablets, teacher laptops and data projectors were stolen.
The suspects had tied-up two patrollers and locked them in a room before making off with new equipment which included a Plasma TV and a Digital Video Recorder for cameras.
The Gauteng Education MEC, Panyaza Lesufi, says police found some of the stolen goods at a shop in the Johannesburg CBD.
“We’re still waiting for the police to release a formal statement. We were called to a crime scene moments ago and we established there are some of our properties there. Because it’s still a crime scene, we felt we need to leave it to the police to conclude it and for them to give us a full briefing. We want to thank them for their tireless efforts and the work that they’re doing to ensure that they recover all the stolen properties,” says Lesufi.
