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.
