PATERSON, NJ – Using LoJack tracking software installed in 15,000 Paterson Public Schools computers, authorities on Wednesday said they arrested a 37-year-old Paterson woman and charged her in connection with the theft of a Dell desktop.
Shawnta Taylor, a bus driver for NJ Transit, was charged with receiving stolen property, according to a story on northjersey.com.
“You take a computer from the Paterson school system, we are going to track you down,” Jim Smith, director of security for Paterson schools, said in the story. “Anyone who takes one takes away a child’s education.”
Smith said he believes Paterson may be the only city in New Jersey that has the LoJack software in its school computers.
