Christmas lights have been stolen from a Poole children’s charity.
At 8.55pm on Tuesday 9 December, thieves stole Christmas lights from the front garden of Julia’s House Children’s Hospice in Springdale Road in the Broadstone.
Police Constable Garry Weston, of Ferndown police, said: “We know that a small light-coloured car or delivery van pulled up outside the hospice and a man got out of the passenger seat and walked toward the grounds of Julia’s House.
“The van left the scene and the offender was seen to walk into the grounds of Julia’s house before leaving carrying the lights.
“This was a despicable crime on a hospice which offers day and respite care for children with life limiting illnesses.
“I urge anyone who saw the incident or has any information about those responsible to contact Dorset Police in confidence.”
Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 quoting incident number 10:63. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
