Around 140 iPads worth more than $70,000 have been stolen from an elementary school on Chicago's West Side.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that burglary happened around 1 a.m. Monday at Charles Hughes Elementary School in the North Lawndale neighborhood.

According to the police report, at least two people broke into the school by shattering a window. Officers also found a window shattered in a second-floor room where safes were strewn about.

The school's principal reported the stolen iPads to police and said they were valued at $70,500.
