ATLANTA -- Atlanta Police hope members of the public can help them identify the suspects accused of burglarizing a middle school.

Four people broke into Brown Middle School in southwest Atlanta on Aug. 17. They accessed the building by breaking the glass on a basement door, according to a police report.

A school security officer told police he was patrolling the building's third floor when he looked out a window and saw several computer carts on the sidewalk outside. He ran to the basement, where he discovered the theft.

Police did not immediately know how many computers were taken, but said the security guard reported about 100 empty slots where computers were once located, according to the police report. At least 75 laptops, 16 desktop computers as well as camcorders and other devices were taken.

Surveillance video taken inside the school showed four black men in their early to mid-20's running in and out of the school with computers several times.

Anyone who can help investigators identify the suspects is asked to call Crime Stoppers Greater Atlanta at 404-577-TIPS.
