Bandits bind Bay Area school janitor, grab iPads

FAIRFIELD — Police are looking for two robbers who bound a janitor with duct tape and made off with about $14,000 worth of computer tablets from a Bay Area high school.

The Vacaville Reporter (http://tinyurl.com/b6y5hw3) reports that the bandits made off with about 40 iPads during the Wednesday robbery at Fairfield's Sem Yeto Continuation School.

Police say one of the robbers was armed with a handgun and confronted the janitor outside a building and threatened his life. After the janitor directed them to the iPads, the robbers bound him to a desk with duct tape.

The janitor managed to free his hands and called police after the robbers fled.

Wednesday's robbery was the third time since September that thieves have stolen iPads from the school.
