PORTLAND -- Dozens of iPads stolen from an Oregon high school were recovered in Rock Creek Park this week.

An employee of the park and recreation district was looking for invasive species or illegally dumped trash in a natural area near Rock Creek Park on March 5. The employee found a large plastic bag holding 38 iPad tablets.

"At first I thought it was some scrap metal," said Panos Stratis, Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District Natural Resources technician. "When I saw it was a bag of iPads, my thoughts began to race."

The technician reported the discovery to the Park Patrol, who contacted the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

According to the sheriff’s office, the tablets cost $400 each, and had been stolen from Westview High School on Feb. 3.

The tablets have since been returned to Westview, where information technology staff determined the devices were in good working order.
