Kirkland police are investigating a burglary that occurred over the weekend at the Kirkland Teen Union Building in which eight laptops were stolen.
Sometime between Friday and Monday, one or more thieves broke into the building, located at 348 Kirkland Ave., and stolen eight MacBook computers, according to Kirkland Police and a spokesperson for the regional YMCA.
Lt. Mike Murray stated that they are currently reviewing surveillance footage but at this time have no description of the suspects or how many of them there might have been. Detectives have also recovered blood samples from when the thieves broke through the window.
A spokesperson for the YMCA said the laptops were a part of a program helping teens to learn computer skills. The theft forced them to suspend the program for the day.
