Reward offered for laptop stolen from North Apollo car
Someone entered six cars in North Apollo and Kiski Township early Saturday and stole electronics — including a badly-needed laptop computer for which there is a $300 reward.
Kiski Township police said the vehicles were parked in various places from Glorietta Hill Road, Kiski Township, to Cochran Avenue in North Apollo.
Police said because there wasn't any damage caused getting into the cars, they all are believed to have been unlocked.
Police Chief Jerrod Thompson said somebody got into the cars at about 5 a.m. Saturday.
The thieves appeared to concentrate on electronics.
The laptop was taken from a car owned by the Rev. Kevin Myers, a new resident of Moore Avenue, North Apollo.
“It belongs to my wife, Sarah. It has all of her graduate school work on it,” said Myers, youth pastor at the Apollo Church of God.
Sarah Myers is a teacher who drives more than an hour daily to teach near Donegal, he said.
She is seeking a master's degree so she can also teach special education.
“She really needs this. We are offering a $300 reward for the return of the computer with the power cord,” Myers said. “No questions asked.”
He said police are looking at surveillance footage of two women with flashlights and backpacks walking along a street before getting into a car.
The Myers couple has been married since December but has only lived in the North Apollo house about two weeks, the pastor said.
“My vehicle is usually always locked,” he said. “I went out at 11 to 11:30 p.m. the night before to get gas. I guess I forgot to lock it.”
