— Raleigh police are seeking the public's help to determine who burglarized three schools and made off with thousands of dollars in electronic equipment.

The most recent robbery happened Wednesday at Enloe Magnet High School, while the other two occurred at Powell Elementary School on Marlborough Road and Conn Elementary School on Brookside Drive, police said. 

All three break-ins occurred either overnight or in the early-morning hours, Wake schools officials said. 

Items taken include computers, tablets and other electronic gear. School system equipment carries identification tags that could alert a potential buyer that they are stolen, officials said. 

Anyone with information about the break-ins should call Crime Stoppers at 919-834-4357.
