KYLE, Texas (KXAN) — Officials recovered a school district’s stolen Chevrolet Suburban with the help of GPS locator beacons.

Hays Consolidated Independent School District reported its transportation department discovered the SUV and seven golf carts were missing Monday morning from their main office along Interstate 35. The spokesperson for HCISD tells KXAN they believe the burglary happened sometime Sunday night into Monday morning.

Officers were called to the facility in the 21000 block of I-35 near Bunton Road at 5:40 a.m.

Along with the vehicles, six iPads and a laptop were stolen from the building. The district says no data was stored on the electronics because they weren’t scheduled for usage until school started.

Police were able to track the Suburban to the parking lot of EVO Entertainment at 3200 Kyle Crossing. Officers detained the driver and four others who were in the vehicle, according to a police affidavit.

Two juveniles and two 17-year-olds were arrested, all of whom are from Kyle, in connection with the burglary.

The school district’s fleet of Suburbans is equipped with GPS locator beacons, similar to those used on many Central Texas school buses, according to Hays CISD. In May, KXAN Investigates reported on the GPS system that monitored drivers’ speed.
