The students of SDN 6 state elementary school in Batu Ampar, East Jakarta, will have to wait for their digital library to open after 32 new monitors were stolen early on Friday.
Principal Suhartati said the theft likely occurred when the school was closed. “The janitor was at school at 11 p.m. and when he was about to clean up the library at 4 a.m., the monitors were all gone,” she said as quoted by tempo.co.
The thieves likely climbed the fence behind the school and opened the windows to the library and the principal’s office. The thieves also took a laptop and an amplifier from Suhartati’s office.
The principal said that the school had been appointed to host the East Jakarta Education Office’s pilot project for a digital library.
“We have had the computers since July, but it had not yet been made official by the administration. The computers are not officially the school’s assets.”
Kramat Jati police precinct chief Comr. Imran Gultom said investigators had questioned the principal, a teacher and the janitor.
“We suspect more than two people were involved in the theft. We are still collecting more information about the case,” Imran said.
