*** Laptop Theft Update ***

Posted 10/9/2013 2:45 PM by MDGREGORY

Spokane County Sheriff's Deputy Jeff Rogers, who is also the Mead High School Resource Deputy, continued his investigation into the 58 stolen laptops from Evergreen Elementary today. After researching calls for service Monday night, Deputy Rogers saw there was a call for missing children from a residence near the school.

Deputy Rogers questioned the 15, 14 and 8-year-old brothers that had been missing that evening. They initially denied any knowledge of the theft.

A short time after Deputy Rogers left; the brother's mother called and asked Deputy Rogers to return. That was when they admitted to the theft. 52 of the 58 laptops were at the residence and have been returned to the school. Deputy Rogers is still investigating the theft, trying to determine where the remaining 6 laptops are at. There is one additional suspect Deputy Rogers has not contacted yet.

• Charges will be forwarded to the Juvenile Prosecutor for review.
