Teachers offer reward after laptops were stolen from car
1:06pm Thursday 3rd October 2013 in News
TWO Bury teachers are offering a reward for the return of work laptops which were stolen from their car at the weekend.
Husband and wife Andrew and Rebecca Holyroyd, who both teach science at the New Charter Academy in Ashton-under-Lyne, discovered their Land Rover Freelander had been broken into while parked on Woodgate Hill Road between Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning.
A Radley bag containing the laptops, as well as education-related paperwork, was stolen from the boot.
The couple stressed that none of the documents or laptop information contain any sensitive information about the identities or addresses of pupils.
Mrs Holroyd, aged 32, said: “The laptops which were taken are Hewlett Packard Probook 6560b models. Both, which are pass protected, contain schoolwork.”
She feared that, because of the security protection, the thieves could abandon the computer equipment and, together with her 41-year-old husband, has scoured the local area in vain to try to recover the equipment. They are now offering a reward for the return of the laptops.
