EAST LIVERPOOL, Ohio (WKBN) – A Beaver Local student was charged with receiving stolen property after reportedly taking a school administrator’s iPad and selling it.

According to the Morning Journal, James L. Spurlock, 19, of Negley appeared in Liverpool Municipal Court Monday on the receiving stolen property charge.

Bond was set at $1,000. Spurlock is scheduled back on court on March 24.

According to police, Principal Eric Lowe reported Feb. 4 that he accidentally left his iPad in the public restroom at the school and a search of the complex failed to turn it up.

Initially, it was believed the iPad had been thrown in the garbage since no activity had taken place on it.

However, on Feb. 11, a Wellsville woman purchased an iPad at Cashland for $199 and, when she attempted to log on, found it had come from Beaver Local Schools.

The woman called the school district and was advised it had been stolen, and was also told by Cashland to come and get her money back.

A surveillance video at Cashland was viewed and Spurlock was reportedly identified as the person who sold the iPad to the business for $90.
