Thieves target nursery in Darlington

Darlington and Stockton Times: Police are investigating theft from nursery Police are investigating theft from nursery

THIEVES targeted a nursery school in Darlington last week.

A group of youths stole a red trike and a yellow framed scooter from Mowden Preschool on the evening of Wednesday February 26.

The items are of playground standard and as such, are more robust and valuable than standard toys.

Police believe the items were taken to the Mowden shop area at around 7.30pm. The scooter has since been recovered but the trike remains missing.

Anyone with information about the theft is asked to contact DC 637 Phil Collingwood on non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800-555-111.

I fully accept that theft is theft and it is unfair to distinguish between victims.

But adults at least understand that there is scum in this world, but how do you tell a load of innocent pre school kids, there are toys missing as somebody stole them to fund their drug habit etc.

I know thieves don't think or care about the victims, but come on.

The school should have parked them up in the Police Station foyer for the night, they can spot a little memory stick being picked up there !
