Milk stolen in "mindless" theft from Shaftesbury children's centre
1:19pm Thursday 3rd October 2013 in News
TWENTY cartons of milk were stolen and 40 cartons damaged outside the main gates of a children’s centre in Shaftesbury earlier this week.
The incident happened sometime between 5am and 7.15am on Wednesday October 2 at the North Dorset Children’s Centre on Wincombe Lane.
Those responsible have stolen 20 pints of milk from a tray at the entrance of the property ready for pupils later that morning.
The offenders also pierced the cartons of the remaining 40 pints causing them to leak onto the pavement and road nearby.
Constable Alistair James, of Shaftesbury police, said: “This mindless act has left a vast number of children without milk and also caused the centre financial loss.
“This children’s centre supports families in need and provides a fantastic service, and crimes like this have a big impact.
“I am appealing to anyone who may have witnessed this incident take place, has information about those responsible or saw any suspicious behaviour in the area prior to it happening to contact police.
“All calls will be treated in confidence.”
No arrests have been made.
Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
