QC school offers reward for stolen computer equipment

  • Oct. 13, 2004 7:00 p.m.

A $250 reward is being offered for information leading to the return of some computer equipment stolen from Queen Charlotte Secondary School.
Over $500 worth of computer networking equipment has been stolen from Queen Charlotte Secondary school in the last year, said principal Clemens Rettich. In the latest incident a thief stole a network hub from the learning centre two weeks ago. Power supplies and cables have also been stolen.
The computers in the learning centre don’t work without the hub, so adult learners could not study for a week. As a consequence of the thefts, the learning centre, library and computer lab must now be locked unless an adult is available to supervise the students, said Mr. Rettich.
The school has security cameras, but the items are small and easily taken. So far nobody has been identified on camera taking anything, said Mr. Rettich.
He believes the networking equipment is being taken-possibly by students-for use in networked gaming with X-box game systems.
Anyone with information can contact Mr. Rettich at 559-8822 or the RCMP.
