A taxi driver has been arrested after $110,000 worth of equipment stolen from South Island School in Aberdeen was found in his cab at a police road block in Shamshuipo. It was the second time the school had been burgled in recent months, and one of two raids on schools reported yesterday. Schools are increasingly a target for theft. Last year more than $11 million in property was reported stolen from schools in 269 burglaries. In the second incident yesterday, two projectors worth $40,000 were stolen after a caretaker, 66, was overpowered and tied up by three raiders at St Stephen's Girls' College in Lyttelton Road, Mid-Levels, at 2.30am. Police are investigating whether the two cases are connected. Yesterday's arrest was made after the taxi was stopped at a police road block at Tai Nan Street and Wong Chuk Street at 5am. Six projectors, 16 LCD monitors and a computer notebook were on the back seat and in the boot, police said. There were no passengers in the vehicle and the driver, 51, claimed he was innocent. He told investigators his taxi had been flagged down by three men outside the South Island School in Nam Fung Road. They ordered him to take the goods to Ki Lung Street in Shamshuipo where someone would be waiting. A police spokesman said a man was acting suspiciously near the road block and he fled when officers approached. A caretaker who lives in the school heard nothing, according to police. The school has surveillance cameras but has no alarm system. 'It appears that the burglars knew the school well because they avoided being captured by the surveillance cameras,' a police investigator said. The officer said colleagues from the Crime Prevention Bureau would talk with the school to improve security measures.
