Bizarre twist to break-in at school.
And, in a bizarre twist, one of the raiders may have left a note on a blackboard proclaiming "Azer Waz 'Ere 21/01/2006".
Police officers are unsure whether the mystery author is behind the break-in at St Marie's RC Junior School in Merttens Drive, Rugby.
Burglars got in through emergency doors and managed to avoid setting off the school's complex burglar alarm system, before making off with computer and electrical equipment.
But when the burglary was discovered on Monday, police officers and head Michael Floyd were amazed to find the message on a blackboard.
Mr Floyd said: "It is difficult to know how and why it was left. It is a mystery because whoever did it didn't set off the alarms.
"One theory is that he may well not be connected to the burglary at all, but saw the doors were open and decided to hop in.
"For the author's own sake we need him to come forward and eliminate himself from the inquiry."
Fifteen computers, three hard drives and three overhead projectors were stolen.
Anyone who saw suspicious activity around the school or who knows who 'Azer' is should ring PC Andy Godley on 01788 541111.
PC Godley is looking at possible links between the burglary and the theft of an overhead projector from Boughton Leigh Junior School, Wetherall Way, Brownsover, at the weekend.
