Police: Man Breaks Into School Where Wife Works to Steal iPads

A New Hampshire man was arrested after he allegedly stole more than a dozen iPads from an elementary school where his wife works.

Police in Manchester say the iPads was taken from Beech Street School last month. A school administrator saw a man outside the school on Saturday, April 14.

The following Monday, after the administrator learned of the missing iPads, police said she reported the sighting. Police reviewed surveillance footage and school officials identified the man as 43-year-old Robert Koehler, whose wife is an employee at the school.

Thursday, after an investigation that lasted more than a month, police arrested Koehler outside his home. He is charged with burglary and violating bail conditions in connection to a domestic violence charge in January.

Monday, after 15 iPads were found at Manchester Pawn, Koehler was also charged with receiving stolen property.

Koehler is expected to appear in Hillsborough County Superior Court Tuesday. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.
