An eleventh person has been charged in connection with the theft of more than $94,000 worth of electronics -- including 300 iPads and seven MacBook Pros, from a Chicago elementary school.

Deion Dillard, 18, turned himself in to police on Wednesday and was due in bond court Thursday, according to DNAinfo Chicago. Dillard is the ninth teen charged in the theft.

According to the Chicago Tribune, the electronics were stolen sometime last Thursday from the auditorium of Drake Elementary School.

Previously, bail was set at $75,000 apiece for Jabare McChristian, 19, and Devin Pearson, 17; both of whom were charged with felony burglary after they admitted taking part in taking the electronics. A 25-year-old, Eugene McQueen, has also been charged with misdemeanor theft.

Seven other people, all juveniles, have also been charged in the theft and DNAinfo previously reported police were still looking for more individuals they believe were involved. Among those charged in the incident are a 13-year-old boy, two 15-year-old girls, a 15-year-old boy and three 16-year-old boys.

According to a statement from Chicago Public Schools, some of the equipment that was taken has been recovered, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
