Money missing; iPads recovered

THOMASVILLE — Money and a check are missing from a Thomas County business, while iPads taken at a county school were recovered.

A Thomas County Sheriff’s Office deputy patrolling during predawn hours Tuesday saw a window open at a business in the 400 block of Commercial Drive.

Another deputy arrived, and the officers entered the building.

No one was in the business, but desk drawers and several cabinets were open.

The business owner said a metal box containing several thousand dollars and a $1,200 check was missing. The owner said the box had been in a cabinet when the business closed at 5 p.m. Monday.

The building was entered through a front window that it appears was unlocked from inside, an incident report shows. No signs of forced entry were found.

The burglary is being investigated.

At Thomas County Middle School on the north bypass, a teacher left two iPad 2’s charging in her classroom Tuesday afternoon. When the teacher returned to the classroom Wednesday morning, the iPad 2’s — costing $400 each — were gone.

An investigation showed two children who arrived at the school early Wednesday morning took the iPads and used them during the day.

Using a cell phone, the iPads were located at the school through a security feature on all county school iPads.

The school chose not to prosecute the children, who will be dealt with in-house.
