The Boston Police Department reports thieves who made off with several laptops yesterday from the Boston International High School , 100 Maxwell St., were planning on taking even more stuff, but were foiled when they took a break to warm up some Hot Pockets and set off an alarm that brought a custodian and police.
Police say a custodian was alerted to a possible problem when an alarm went off Dunday afternoon. He reset the alarm, but it went off again. This time, he noticed a black bag and that several classroom doors had broken windows.
In a statement, police say:
"Officers searched the building and observed numerous classroom windows broken and several computers, chargers and cords stacked in a manner that would suggest the suspect/s were planning to take them. While the officers cleared the building they observed two recently cooked 'Hot Pockets' in a classroom where the computers were stacked. The Hot Pockets were still warm. After a complete search of the building, no suspects were located."
Police say an inventory showed several missing MacBooks and LCD projectors and vandalism to several offices.
