Police have launched a CCTV appeal after a burglary took place at a children’s day nursery in Bridlington.
A man entered Park Nursery, on Queensgate, by smashing glass front door panel between 4am and 4.40am on July 7.
The man then searched the property and stole an Asus laptop and a small amount of cash.
Claire Nichol, Park Nursery proprietor, said: “Myself and the team were very upset that someone would want to break into an environment where children are meant to feel secure. It really was not worth the effort for what he gained too with the man getting away with a laptop and around £10 in change which we use as our petty cash.”
Despite the damage to the property, the nursery has continued with business as usual with Claire determined to not let the incident affect the children.
“The parents couldn’t believe it and have voiced how disgusted they are,” said Claire. “To lower yourself to doing something like this where children are meant to come along and feel safe and secure is just horrific.
“I can’t praise my staff highly enough though. They have been fantastic.”
Police investigating the burglary have issued a picture of a man they want to speak to.
Claire added: “I just can’t understand why someone would do this. It is disgraceful and they should be ashamed of themselves, whoever they are.
“If the person has a conscious I would urge them to bring the property back, but I doubt that’ll happen.”
If you know who this is or can help the police with their enquiries please call the non-emergency number 101 quoting reference 2199145.
