Michigan City Police believe they've caught the men who broke into a Michigan City school and stole their laptop computers.

Derek Gaye, 19, Tyrner Valdes, 20 and Joshua Hildebrandt, 20, are all now charged with burglary.

The robbery was discovered Monday at Elston Middle School and AK Smith Career Center.

Police started investigating and it turns out a security guard at the school had seen and talked to two of the men as they left the property. That's how officers were able to identify the suspects.

Police were also able to recover some of the electronics and tools that were stolen.
