On October 8th, 2013, Spokane County Sheriff's Deputy Jeffry Rogers responded to Evergreen Elementary, in the Mead School District, on a burglary call. Deputy Rogers spoke with a school employee who said the school janitor had received a couple alarm calls
late Monday evening and early Tuesday morning.
The janitor responded to the first alarm and did not find any evidence of a burglary. When he was notified about the second alarm, the alarm company said they did not hear anything inside the school and the decision was made not to have anyone respond.
On Tuesday morning, school officials found that a total of 58 Apple Macbook Air laptop computers had been stolen from two different classrooms. There was no obvious signs of forced entry into the school or classrooms and the estimated total loss for the school
district was over $69,000.
