New Albany: Officers looking for teacher's missing tablet

New Albany police officers say they have a suspect in the theft of an electronic tablet taken from a teacher between 2:30 and 2:45 p.m. Thursday, May 2, at New Albany High School.

The teacher reported the tablet missing from a classroom at 3:33 p.m. and told police that one student had been in the room twice that afternoon.
