By Susan Morse, The York Weekly

YORK, Maine — Two teens are accused of stealing four computers from York High School the morning of graduation, according to a police report.

Joshua Brooks, 19, and a 17-year-old male, both of York, are each charged with burglary. They allegedly went into York High School at 1:06 a.m. June 12 and took four iMac desktop computers, according to York police.

The computers have a value of $8,000, police said.

Police reported no signs of forced entry, with teachers who use the room saying they did not know if the room was locked, according to the police report.

The theft was reported at about 10:30 a.m. June 12, according to a police report from June 16.

The original police log entry for the incident states only a reported theft from Robert Stevens Drive.

Police were reportedly alerted to the two teens when a computer was found in the possession of someone who said he had bought it off craigslist for $400, according to the report.

The juvenile has a court date of Aug. 12. Brooks is scheduled to appear in York District Court on Aug. 20.
