Burglars steal £7 from Tarleton nursery's charity box
by David Simister

HEARTLESS thieves who broke into a Tarleton nursery and raided its charity box took just £7 during the break-in, staff there have said this week.

Lancashire Constabulary confirmed that burglars had targeted Hesketh Lane Pre School overnight between 5.30pm last Thursday (January 17) and 8am the following morning, and smashed a window to get into the building.

A spokesperson for the nursery said: “They would have come in looking for laptops and that sort of thing, but these were all safely locked away elsewhere. The only thing that was left out was the charity box, and luckily there was only £7 in it that they took.

”Even so, they left a lot of mess to clear up when we arrived in the morning, and it's never nice having two police cars outside what is a pre school and having parents and children asking what's going on.“

Staff also said it is the fourth time the site has been targeted by burglars in the past two years.

If you have any information about this incident contact Lancashire Constabulary on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
