HOUSTON -- Police said an early morning alarm led them to a Houston elementary school where a suspect was apparently trying to steal laptop computers.

It was around 1 a.m. Tuesday when the Houston Independent School District alerted police to the burglary in progress at Luther Burbank Elementary on Tidwell near Bauman.

Police said a video surveillance system showed the suspect in the school’s library.

HPD responded with a K-9 unit, but the suspect or suspects were gone by the time officers arrived.

Whoever it was left the computers by a door, getting away with nothing.

Police said the suspect used a tarp to get over the school’s barbed wire fencing between the campus and an HISD maintenance facility.
