Sheriff's deputies were looking Friday for the burglars who stole $61,000 in computers from an elementary school in southeast Los Angeles County.

The thieves broke a window early Thursday to get into Cyrus J. Morris Elementary School in Walnut and took 47 Apple laptops.

“School districts can’t afford this kind of thing,” said Lt. John Saleeby of the L.A. County Sheriff's Department. “It hurts the kids.”

It was the second recent break-in at the school. Last month, four LCD projectors worth $1,000 were stolen during spring break.
