As first reported by the Dorchester Reporter, the Catholic private school located on Savin Hill Avenue, was broken into Thursday night and had computers, a safe and one of the school’s vans, used to transport students to their work-study programs, stolen.
According to Jeffery Thielman, the president of Cristo Rey, who was reached by phone Friday, the theft was discovered this morning by a janitor.
"At some point between the evening and this morning there was a break-in and 15 computers were stolen and three office spaces were damaged,” said Thielman.
At the moment it is unclear how the thief or thieves were able to gain entry into the school.
The school does have a security video system in place, but it was not working at the time of the break-in because it was set to be upgraded Friday morning.
"We're pretty much relying on the people who saw and heard things to come forward," said Susan Hunt, director of finance and operations for the school, who was reached by phone Friday.
