    Lower Providence police have not identified the three juveniles arrested for allegedly stealing 30 iPads from Methacton Area High School, but charges have been filed.

    The three face burglary, theft and other charges for their roles in the crime, which took place in early June.

    The Pottstown Mercury reports the thieves allegedly entered the school through a second-story window and took the iPads from a science classroom. Six iPads were recovered from a Lower Providence home, but the other 24 remain missing.
