Police are asking for help in identifying a woman who allegedly stole two Apple Macbook laptops and an iPad from Edison Elementary School during a graduation ceremony.

Sometime between 2:30 and 4:30 p.m. on June 2, the suspect entered the school at 435 S. Pacific Ave. while the graduation ceremony was taking place in the school’s auditorium, said Glendale Police spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot.

She then proceeded into several unlocked classrooms, where she allegedly stole the electronic devices before fleeing the school grounds, Lightfoot said.

The suspect, captured on video surveillance cameras, is described as a black female, between 22 and 38 years old, between 5 feet 5 and 5 feet 8 and weighing from 125 to140 pounds.

Anyone with information about the suspect’s identity is asked to contact Det. Travis Goodreau at (818) 548-2097.
