A television, computers and projectors are among the items taken from two Hart district schools following break-ins last week, a district official said Thursday.

Hart High School and Sierra Vista Junior High School were both broken into and burglarized last week during spring break, according to William S. Hart Union High School District spokeswoman Gail Pinsker. As a result, both schools had “serious” damage done to doors and windows.

Along with the physical damage, both schools had a number of technological devices stolen, Pinsker said.

Ten computers, eight Dell laptops and two Mac Books were taken from Sierra Vista, Pinsker said. Along with the computers, burglars took a projector, a digital camera, a laptop case, a Palm Pilot, two microphones and a television, Pinsker said.

At Hart, burglars took one laptop and projector, but also stole a number of cell phones that had been donated to raise money for members of the United States armed forces.

“They (the burglars) are not only hurting the kids through this burglary, they’re also impacting our hard-working troops,” Pinsker said.

Detectives from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station are seeking two young men thought to be involved in the burglaries.

One is described as 18 to 21 years old, approximately 5-foot-8 in height and weighing 150-190 pounds. Both were described as young men of thin builds.

The two are also wanted in connection to two other school burglaries that took place over spring break. Laptops were also reported stolen in those incidents, which took place at Newhall Elementary School and Old Orchard Elementary School.
