ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Search of SW ABQ address turns up computers, overhead projectors, walkie-talkie.
Following the arrest Friday of 19-year-old Alejandro Cortez and an unnamed 17-year-old female who were allegedly stealing computers from Mary Ann Binford Elementary School, Albuquerque Public Schools detectives executed a search warrant at a South Valley address and found more equipment stolen from APS, according to a morning news conference.
Cortez and the girl apparently tripped an alarm at the school on 1400 Corriz SW Friday night and were allegedly found in possession of two iMac computers that had been taken from a portable classroom, according to reports.
According to the Albuquerque Journal's Zsombor Peter who attended this morning's news conference at APS, school police detectives executed a search warrant in the 1100 block of Alexandra St. SW and recovered eight computers, two overhead projectors and a school walkie-talkie — all of which had been reported stolen from APS schools.
