Dozens of Apple electronic devices allegedly related to a crime in Airdrie have been recovered in Sylvan Lake.
A search warrant executed on a Sylvan Lake residence on April 25 turned up 27 iPad Minis and three Macbook Air laptops. Further investigation led to the recovery of five more Macbook laptops and eight more iPads.
Airdrie RCMP say the electronics are “in relation to” a March 20 break-in at CW Perry School in that city.
