How did they know where to find the computers and tablets? There must a link to the school(s). They know someone who works there or for some company that services the schools. I'll assume they're not getting tips from grammar school children.

"Persons of Interest" in the Baldwin robbery? Ya think?!?

LMP: Good question. I would have bet big money that the perps were local. It's not certain these are the same two goons who ripped off Baldwin, but your question applies at either school.

Perhaps one answer, at least in part, is that some of the individual teacher's web pages might have mentioned their students using I-pads. My kid has been at both Greenbrook and Baldwin, and that could be how criminals from so far away knew approximately where to look. Or, there could still be a local 3rd party involved. Dumb luck (as far as which classroom to break into) seems very unlikely.

Either way, thanks San Ramon police for showing up in time to nail Abbott & Costello. Hope they can be tied to Baldwin if they are the same creeps.

A nice story to read on this wet Friday.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
