Stolen tablets back with school kids

Thirty computer tablets stolen from a Marlborough school have been recovered by police.

In a statement, police say they found a vehicle in Picton on Monday evening with the tablets inside.

The tablets have been returned to Richmond View School in Blenheim where they were taken from over the weekend.

“A thank you all for your help – we located a vehicle in Picton on Monday evening and the stolen tablets were within it,” the statement says.

“One 36-year-old man from Blenheim has been arrested in relation to the burglary of the school.

“Great result”.

Principal Dave Pauling says the theft was discovered on Monday morning shortly before school started for the week.

“It’s such a low thing to do.

“This is the first time something like this has happened in 10 years and we are quite shocked but trying to move on,” he says.
