Contractor finds laptops stolen from Madison school district in vacant building
MADISON, Wis. — A contractor hired to remodel a vacant building found 12 laptop computers that were stolen from the Madison Metropolitan School District, according to a release.
The contractor, who was hired to remodel a building in the 3200 block of East Washington Avenue, called police Wednesday after he found some potentially stolen property, police said.
