Tuesday Evening Crime Report

Project THINK, which offers a summer enrichment program for K-8 children, had office at 555 W. Foothill Blvd. burglarized some time between Friday evening and Saturday morning, the Daily Bulletin reports.

The unidentified thieves stole 15 of the program's laptop computers. The was no damage to the building itself, according to the Bulletin article, which went on to say:

"There's probably nothing (else) of value," said Susan Warren, who co-founded and co-directs the program with Kay Conley. "They didn't touch the old-school computers. They knew to go for the laptops."

Project Think, which is in its 29th year, is an active-learning summer program for preschoolers to eighth-graders.

During two three-week sessions, the program delves into several subjects such as computers, art history and appreciation, language arts, performing arts and science.

The nonprofit acquired its computers more than three years for $500 each through a program at Azusa Pacific University. Warren is a professor at the university.

If you or someone you know is looking to upgrade your own laptop, you might consider donating your old one to Project THINK. You can reach them here.
