Five Laptops Go Missing From Bronx School, Officials Say
MOTT HAVEN — Five laptops went missing from a Bronx school Monday, the Department of Education said.
The computers disappeared over the weekend from South Bronx Preparatory: A College Board School, a college preparation school that serves grades 6 through 12 on a shared campus at East 145th Street near Willis Avenue, the DOE said.
"The school administration became aware of five missing laptops [Monday] when classes resumed from the weekend," said Marge Feinberg, a DOE spokeswoman. "The school is investigating."
Police responded to the school on Monday after the computers were discovered missing.
The 600-student South Bronx Prep shares space at the Elijah Clark campus, formerly the troubled M.S. 149, with M.S. 223 The Laboratory School of Finance and Technology, which serves 500 students in grades 6 to 8.
Both are part of Mayor Michael Bloomberg's small schools initiative.
