East London and West Essex Guardian Series: Police are still searching for the raiders Police are still searching for the raiders

The hunt for a gang of burglars who stole thousands of pounds during a raid on a secondary school continues after two suspects were released.

A 17-year-old man from Epping, who was arrested on suspicion of being involved in the Epping St John’s School burglary earlier this week, has been released with no further action to be taken.

Another man arrested in connection with the break-in at the site in Bury Lane has been bailed until February 26, pending further investigations.

Ipads and thousands of pounds in cash were stolen overnight on Monday, forcing the school to close to pupils on Monday.

Police are searching for four men who were captured on CCTV carrying out the raid and encourage anyone with information to come forward.
