Police are appealing for information after thieves broke into a storage unit at an infants’ school in Yate, stole a scooter and scrawled offensive graffiti on a play house.

It happened at Broadway County Infants School over the weekend of September 19-20 2009.

The burglary caused about £150 of damage to the storage unit to steal the red push-along scooter and four safety helmets. Fortunately the graffiti was only written in chalk.

Neighbourhood Sergeant Adrian Fallows said: “This sort of behaviour is simply not acceptable. We are investigating and appealing for anyone with information about those responsible to contact us.

“We would also like to hear from anyone who knows where the stolen items are or who has been offered them for sale. Call Chipping Sodbury Police Station on 0845 456 7000, or alternatively call the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via We never ask for your name or trace your call.”

PS Fallows added that the neighbourhood team would be stepping up patrols in the area in response to the incident.
