SEATTLE —

A nonprofit that helps about 500 Seattle high school students get into college each year was badly burglarized recently.

College Access Now was broken into during the weekend. Kayle Walls showed KIRO 7 the damage and described how someone used a crowbar to smash their way in. Five laptops were taken, along with petty cash and company credit cards. The cards were used throughout the south side Monday. Walls hopes security cameras at some of the gas stations and grocery stores will help Seattle Police catch whoever committed the crime. "It's very disheartening that this would happen," Walls said.

Wall said the group is grant- and donation-funded and a hit like this just as school is back in session really hurts.
