Not So Savvy Tech Crooks Caught on Camera

By Dan Gesslein

BRONX, NEW YORK, September 26- A pair of electronics thieves apparently were not so tech savvy as to prevent cops from recording their faces on surveillance video. Cops are looking for the crooks who ripped off a charter school of laptops.

At around 12:28 a.m. on September 5, a man and a woman broke into the Harriet Tubman Charter School in Morrisania. The pair made off with eight laptops valued in the thousands. Cops released surveillance video of the burglars inside the school in the hope that someone might recognize them. The video shows the pair casually walking through the empty school looking for items to take. At one point the female suspect looks directly up at the camera. It is unclear if she realized she was being video taped.

It is still unclear to investigators how the pair got into the locked school.

Anyone with information is urged to call CRIMESTOPPERS at (800) 577-TIPS. The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.

All calls are kept strictly confidential.
