ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Albany students are asking thieves to return 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 broken into. Three laptops and a big screen TV were stolen from the program's office on MLK Jr. Drive Sunday night.

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

4-R.E.A.L. Community Liaison Courtenay Thomas said "If you could bring their work back, it would mean the world to them. 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 $6000.
