macbookSPOKANE – A sleuth mom helped detectives track down three accused laptop thieves this week.

According to KXLY, 58 MacBook Air laptops were reported stolen from an elementary school in the Spokane suburb of Mead on Tuesday.

The previous night, a school employee reported that the building’s alarm had gone off twice.

Deputies went through a backlog of calls and noticed someone had called 911 regarding three missing boys at about the time when the alarms went off.

A detective went to the home, which was near the school and talked to the three boys.

They initially denied knowing about the theft, but hours after the detective left the mother called back saying the boys were ready to confess.

Deputies recovered 52 of the laptops. They believe another boy also involved in the theft may know where the other six computers are.

KXLY reported that criminal charges were being forwarded to the county’s juvenile prosecutor.

    This same disgusting thievery is commonplace at the Port Authority Bus Terminal's Lost & Found Dept. in NYC by PABT Supervisors. Google  “Donna Lebourne abc news" & see the vile face of shame being confronted & exposed.

    Port Authority Supervisor Donna Lebourne has an outside job, she is the Vice President of her & her husband’s charity Caribbean Sports International that donates cellphones & other electronics.  If you lost an item at the Port Authority Bus Terminal and did not get it back, contact her charity, perhaps she may donate your item back to you out of the kindness of her evil heart. It's very easy to be charitable when you are giving away other peoples' property.

    The Port Authority allows these crimes by their supervisors & their enablers to go unpunished. The Port Authority also has an illegal policy of throwing lost valid passports found at the PABT in the garbage, for anyone to find & use for their own nefarious purposes. The Port Authority’s illegal passport policy is criminally insane in this age of global terrorism and rampant identity theft. This is an act of treason against the United States of America. The Port Authority has become an imminent threat to national security. Google “Port Authority – passports” & “found, stolen, trashed by PA”

    No one should be above the law no matter who they are and who they work for.
