ALBANY, GA (WALB) –   Albany students are asking thieves to bring back stolen lap top computers, that contain their project for a presentation in Washington D. C. this summer.

The 4-R.E.A.L. after school mentoring and leadership program for teenagers was found burglarized Sunday night. The office on Martin Luther King Drive was broken into, and three lap top computers and a big screen TV were missing.

The computers contained months of work their students had done on a leadership project, that can not be replaced.

Organizers are asking the thieves to bring those computers back, no questions asked.

"If you could bring their work back, it would mean the world to them," said 4-R.E.A.L. Community Liaison Courtenay Thomas. "Because they have put so much of themselves in it. And you can not put a dollar value on their effort."

4-R.E.A.L. program directors say the electronic equipment stolen was worth about $6,000.
