Ten iPads have been stolen by thieves after two Stevenage schools were broken into in the space of 24 hours.
Barclay School in Walkern Road was broken into between 3am and 3.20am on Friday, but nothing was taken but about £500 worth of damage was done.
The day after iPads were stolen from Fairlands Valley Primary School in Pound Avenue at about 2.30am.
The thieves got into the building by climbing through a window and caused about £1,000 worth of damage.
PC Michelle Lowe, who is investigating the incidents, said: “During periods when schools are not open, they are potentially more vulnerable, and we would like the public to pay attention to the buildings and report anything they think is suspicious.
You may also want to watch:
“We are very keen to hear from anyone who has any information about these burglaries, or saw or heard anything suspicious at the time.
“We would also like to hear from anyone who has been offered an iPad for sale. You can also pass on information anonymously via Crimestoppers.”
