Ten desktop computers were stolen last week from a Catholic elementary school in Portola Valley, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.
Deputies responded on Friday to a burglary reported at Woodside Priory School at about 8:45 a.m., according to the sheriff's office.
The Apple iMac computers were stolen from the school's computer lab and estimated to be worth $12,000, according to the sheriff's office.
Detectives believe the burglar or burglars entered the computer lab by cutting a screen and sliding open a window that is located next to the lab.
The sheriff's office is continuing to investigate a similar burglary at Corte Madera School, also in Portola Valley, in which 21 laptop computers worth $16,000 were stolen sometime between June 29 and June 30.
Anyone who might have witnessed the crimes or has information that could help the investigation is asked to contact San Mateo County Sheriff's Detective Ben Hand at (650) 363-4192 or call the sheriff's anonymous tip line at (800) 547-2700.
