Two iPads were stolen from a classroom at Finley Road Elementary School Friday night, according to a Rock Hill police report.

The iPads were out on a counter, the report states. An unknown man entered the school around 11:30 p.m., took the iPads and then left the building. There were no signs of damage or a point of entry into the building.

A video showed the suspect was a male wearing a gray hoodie, green backpack and black shoes.

The teacher told police the iPads were engraved on the back with the teacher’s name and the school.

Karen Vinson, administrative assistant in information services, said the iPads were not iRock iPads, but were a classroom set owned by the school prior to this year.

iRock is a multi-year $9 million initiative that provides an iPad to every fourth- through eighth-grade student and some ninth-grade students to use in the classroom and at home.

More than two dozen district iPads have gone missing since the beginning of school this year.
