An investigation is underway to see if a storage unit bust is linked to a burglary of more than $60,000 worth of computers and electronics from a local charter school that is now closed.
Electric guitars, Apple computers, monitors, music equipment and lights were all loaded into a U-Haul from the Storage Mart located in the 9500 block of Potranco Wednesday morning.
Eyewitness News obtained a police report dated August 14th, 2017, stating that the San Antonio School for Inquiry and Creativity located in the 4600 block of San Pedro was burglarized. The Charter School was shut down last year by the TEA.
The August report states that thieves stole Apple computers and Airbooks, worth $40,000. $17,000 worth of TVs, radios, and stereos were also stolen. Also listed: commercial grade video cameras, guitars, keyboards and a 3D printer.
KENS 5 is waiting to learn if the TEA is investigating if the items seized are connected to the burglary. KENS 5 also learned the current board president, Dr. Judy Castleberry was on site at the Storage Mart Wednesday morning, but would not comment. KENS 5 also spoke to the interim superintendent for San Antonio School of Inquiry and Creativity, Velia Minjarez, but she couldn't comment either.
