A Brownwood school district was terminated earlier this month in connection with the theft of several student computers, which have been recovered, the district said in a press release Friday.
    Brownwood Police Chief Terry Nichols said the case will be presented to the district attorney’s office. “We have a suspect we are investigating,” Nichols said.
    The computers were recovered from “two different residences in Brownwood,” Nichols said, declining to elaborate.
    According to the school district’s press release:
    In early December 2017, several computers were determined to be missing. The district’s technology department activated the tracking software on the computers and notified the Brownwood Police Department.
    The computers were located Jan. 12 “through the hard work of the Brownwood PD and the Brownwood ISD Technology Department,” the district said in the press release.
    “Because of statements made to the police during the investigation, an employee of the district was immediately terminated,” the district said.
    “BISD continues to fully cooperate
with the Brownwood PD during the ongoing investigation and ultimate prosecution of this crime. We thank them for returning the computers to our district and our students.”
