PORTLAND, Ore. --Several Portland area schools have been burglarized in recent months, according to a spokesperson with GadgetTrak.

One school "had enough" and used the company's software on a number of its laptops. When the school was again burglarized, the spokesperson said "the wrong laptop" was stolen.

GadgetTrak's software activated and began photographing the suspect and his location.

Ken Westin with GadgetTrak said police were able to work with the company to locate the device.

Suspects have been identified thanks to the software, Westin said.
