47 Apple MacBook laptops valued at $61,000 and an LCD projector were stolen by burglars who reportedly broke into Cyrus J. Morris Elementary School in Walnut early Thursday. It's the second break-in at the school in recent weeks -- four LCD projectors, valued at $1,000, were stolen during spring break."Schools cannot take this kind of hit," Lt. John Saleeby of the sheriff's Walnut Station said, according to the SGV Tribune. "We need the public's help on this big time. We need to get these things back."

The laptops were acquired through a pilot fundraising program in conjunction with Apple.

Anyone with information about the burglary is asked to call the sheriff's Walnut/Diamond Bar Station at 909-595-2264.
