Briefs: Burglars take 21 laptops from school

 

One or more burglars broke through an outside door to the computer lab at Corte Madera Middle School in Portola Valley and got away with 21 laptop computers valued at about $16,000, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.

The incident was reported to the Sheriff's Office on June 30. The school, located at 4575 Alpine Road in Portola Valley, is closed for the summer and investigators have no leads, deputies said.

Car accident at The Sequoias

Meanwhile on that same day in the 500 block of Portola Road -- the location of The Sequoias retirement community -- a woman attempting to park her vehicle jumped a curb and collided with a 3-foot retaining wall after accidentally stepping on the accelerator, deputies said.

After hitting the wall, her vehicle veered and traveled 35 feet along the wall, ran into a golf cart and pushed it into another wall, deputies said.

The driver's vehicle sustained "moderate damage" to the hood, grill and driver's side fender and rear quarter panel, the report said. The driver was reported "incapacitated at the scene."

Given the financial difficulties that middle schools experience, one would have to be a real low life to steal from a school.
