Police Catch Charter School Thief

Police have caught the thief who stole 4 lap­top com­put­ers and eight iPads from the Lake County Inter­na­tional Char­ter School last week.
Shelby Gael Dun­lap, of Napa County was arrested Sat­ur­day morn­ing. Dur­ing inves­ti­ga­tion of the theft, detec­tives found a Twin Pine Casino player card with Dunlap’s name on it at the char­ter school. That infor­ma­tion was passed along to Napa County offi­cials who had a war­rant out for her arrest on drug-related charges. Deputies look­ing for Dun­lap at the casino noticed some hand­bags at the secu­rity booth. Turns out, she’d left them there and inside were two Dell lap­top com­put­ers. When arrested, Dun­lap also had one of the stolen iPads in her pos­ses­sion. She insists she wasn’t the one to steal the items. Dun­lap has been booked into the Lake County Jail for bur­glary and pos­ses­sion of stolen prop­erty. She remained in cus­tody yes­ter­day with a $50,000 bail. The lap­tops and iPads were acquired for the Char­ter School through a grant.
