A former ConVal School District employee has been formally accused of allegedly stealing laptops and other computer-related items from the district.

Timothy Baylies, 36, of Hillsborough, allegedly stole between $1,000 and $1,500 in various electronic items from the school district between Nov. 15, 2015 and Jan. 27, 2016, according to court records.

“[The school district] had reported to us that items were going missing,” Peterborough Police Sergeant Michael Chapdelaine said Friday. “We made some suggestions and put in some cameras, which aided in gathering information. We developed a suspect pretty quick.”

Baylies was indicted on a felony level charge of theft by unauthorized taking by a grand jury at the Hillsborough Superior Court in Manchester in August. The class B felony, carries a sentence of up to 3 and a half to seven years in prison and up to a $4,000 fine.

Baylie’s LinkedIn page says he was a technology coordinator at South Meadow School in Peterborough from July 2014 to Jan. 2016.

“[I] decided to resign from public school teaching, at least for the time being, and pursue other en-devours [sic],” reads his LinkedIn page.

The ConVal School Board accepted Baylies’ resignation from the district on Feb. 2, 2016, according to approved meeting minutes.
