Headteacher hits out as milk thieves strike again
4:41pm Friday 13th September 2013 in News
A HEADTEACHER has hit out at "callous" thieves who stole milk from a primary school near Darlington.
Staff at Croft Primary School were horrified to discover milk for students had been stolen earlier this week.
It is the third time milk thefts have been reported at the school, with two incidents before the summer holidays.
Headteacher Brenda Higgins said: “This is very frustrating, it is milk that we use in cooking for the children in school, so it had to be replaced, with the associated costs involved.”
The Northern Echo reported in July that early morning milk-snatchers in the village were leaving homeowners without a daily pinta for their breakfast cereal.
Now it appears the thieves have graduated from targeting homes to the local school.
Mrs Higgins added: “It’s the fact that people can come and take milk that is meant for the children – it’s quite callous.”
Anyone with information about the milk thefts is asked to call police on 101.
