Overstreet, of Deerfield Beach, is accused of stealing 48 Apple iPads and 36 charging cords worth $28,830.

Overstreet worked for a cleaning company that’s contracted by Saint Andrew’s, but he was not authorized to be at the school, the company’s owner told Boca Raton police.

Surveillance video caught Overstreet arriving at the school at 5:30 a.m. Saturday and opening classroom doors, the report said. Overstreet allegedly left with large trash bags filled with iPads.

A database search of pawn shops revealed that Overstreet had sold 31 of the 48 iPads he is accused of stealing.

Overstreet phoned Boca Raton police from Tallahassee and said he had screwed up and was sorry, the report said. Overstreet told a detective there was no reason to issue an arrest warrant and that he would turn himself in.

Overstreet was booked into jail Wednesday night.
