    A break-in at a North County school overnight was the fourth in a string of school burglaries this month.

    Sage Canyon School on Harvest Run Drive was burglarized overnight however officials would not reveal what was stolen.

    The school's alarm first went off at 1:01 a.m.. When officers arrived at 1:19 a.m., they believe they interrupted the burglary as it was taking place.

    At least three other schools in the North County have been burglarized. Rancho Diegueno Country School at 15663 Circo Diegueno Road in Del Mar was burglarized between July 1 to 4.

    Someone broke into Ocean Air Elementary School at 11444 Canter Heights Drive in San Diego on July 8.

    Officials are also investigating the theft of equipment at Solana Santa Fe Elementary School at 6570 El Apajo in Fairbanks Ranch on July 11.

    In the three previous school burglaries, Apple computers were stolen. A map shows the proximity of the four crimes.

    Officials aren’t saying if the recent burglaries are related.

    In 2012, six schools in North County were targeted in similar burglaries, where thieves broke through windows and stole iPads.

    The suspects – who were part of a gang – were eventually captured and arrested.
