The St. Elizabeth Police has launched an investigation into a robbery at Sydney Pagon STEM Academy over the weekend.
According to reports, 65 Samsung tablets valued at approximately $1.95 million were stolen from the guidance counsellor's office.
The break-in was discovered Monday morning when students and members of the school's academic and ancillary staff turned up for work.
The school's guidance counsellor reportedly checked off the tablets Friday and securely locked the office.
But on Monday morning, it was discovered that a window to the office was breached and the place ransacked.
The theft of the tablets will severely affect instruction at the facility as the devices were to be used by the students.
The police are asking businesses and individuals to be on the lookout for people who might want to pass off the tablets at very low prices.
The administration of Sydney Pagon STEM Academy says an audit will be conducted to determine if other vital pieces of equipment were taken during the break-in.
