Five Rock Hill students and another suspect have been charged after deputies say they stole seven iPads from the school and fellow students.
Three of the students were allowed to finish their final exams before deputies escorted them away from Rock Hill High, officials said. Four of the students were arrested on campus Friday. Another was arrested two weeks ago and petitioned to family court.
Once the iPads had been reported stolen, deputies investigated and learned that the suspects stole the tablets, many of them Apple iPads, from the school. They also allegedly stole personal devices belonging to other students, according to a York County Sheriff's Office news release.
They sold the tablets to either pawn shops, electronics kiosks or other trade stores, the release states.
The four students arrested Friday include: Devin JaQese Boyd, 18; Darius Deangre Stevenson, 18; Deante Javon McGraw, 18; Kendric Allen Green, 17. The fifth suspect, Dontavious Trenard Ingram, 20, is not a student at Rock Hill High.
A sixth suspect is a juvenile whose name was not released, authorities said.
Three of the Rock Hill High students arrested Friday are seniors and one is a junior, said Elaine Baker, Rock Hill schools spokeswoman.
It was unknown how the iPads were found by law enforcement officials, but the four devices were returned to the school.
