About 27 laptops have reportedly gone missing after thieves broke into a storeroom at Kori Junior High School in the Builsa North Municipality of the Upper East Region.
The Tuesday night burglary also resulted in the loss of four rechargeable lamps, a solar power inventor, two gallons of liquid soap, and an amount of GHC80 belonging to the PTA.
Albert Anyaana, the headteacher of the school, who gave details of the burglary, said the management of the school arrived on Thursday morning at a burgled storeroom with a cabinet containing the valuables lying empty behind the school block.
He intimated that the burglary was carried out the night before.
He said one of the laptops which dropped as the thieves got away has been retrieved from a bush near the school premises.
The headteacher said the incident has since been reported to the police in Sandema and investigations have begun to identify the perpetrators.
“When it happened like that I quickly had to place a call to my circuit supervisor, then my PTA chairman, SMC chairman who doubles as the chief of that very community, and the assemblyman of the area. I quickly called on them, then I and the assemblyman together went to the police station and reported the case,” Anyaana told Asaase Radio.
“Two personnel were sent to the school to see things for themselves in order to aid them in their investigation”.
