Windsor police have found a person of interest in connection with the theft of several computers from a magnet school on Thursday.
The computers worth thousands of dollars disappeared from Pathways Academy of Technology and Design at 184 Windsor Avenue sometime between 12 a.m. and 7 a.m. Thursday, according to police.
At some point after the burglary, one of the computers was activated, capturing a picture of a man that police call a person of interest. It was not clear how the picture was transmitted to the school or police.
Police would not say the person in the picture was the alleged thief, but did say he was in possession of the stolen computer on Thursday after the burglary. They wanted to interview him about the computers, according to Capt. Tom LePore.
Police said the person has been identified thanks to media exposure.
The investigation is ongoing.
