As Apple announces its latest iSomething offerings, West Vancouver police are reminding parents that previous years' models are just as popular among thieves.
With the first week of school barely in the books, West Van police are already investigating a case of a smartphone being stolen from a student while at school.
Smartphones, tablet computers and MP3 players accounted for all but one of the 14 thefts at West Vancouver schools reported to police during the last school year, according to police.
Most thefts involved the devices being left unsecured and unattended, even for only very brief periods in libraries, gyms, cafeterias or even in classrooms.
