Wrentham high school probes possible computer hacking

Posted by Martin Finucane March 29, 2007 05:15 PM


Police are investigating whether a student at King Philip Regional High School hacked into the school’s computer system. Wrentham Police Chief Joseph Collamati said school officials asked police to investigate earlier this month.

Police searched the student’s home on March 19 and confiscated computers, he said. Collamati said the computer crimes unit of the Metropolitan Law Enforcement Council, a regional police consortium, has taken over the probe.

Collamati would not say what police believe the student’s motive was. King Philip Superintendent Richard Robbat confirmed the investigation was underway but would not comment further.
