Main article content
One of our officers from the Safer Neighbourhood team in Linton, South Derbyshire is appealing for information after a boy’s scooter was stolen from his school during their sports day.
The incident happened between 4pm and 5.30pm on Thursday, July 4 at Linton Primary School, Main Street, Linton when the ‘MGP’ stunt scooter, worth nearly £250, was stolen. (similar scooter pictured)
The theft is being investigated by PCSO Dave McMillan, from the team, who said: “I feel for the lad who owns the scooter as his mum has told me that he really looked after it and yet the day he took it to school it appears to have been stolen.
“We encourage pupils to walk, cycle or scooter to school and so it is particularly disappointing that this has happened. We would of course recommend that a good quality lock is used to secure such items when they are left unattended.
“On the day that the scooter was taken there were other schools there, taking part in an area sports day.
“I would ask anyone that has seen such a scooter, has been offered it for sale or saw anything suspicious on the day to make contact with me.”
