It was disappointing that local Police yesterday needed to send the following ringmaster alert round :
On the 6th January 2010, Gamesley Community Primary School was broken into twice. On both occasions laptop computers were stolen. A number of other laptop computers have been stolen from properties/premises on Gamesley over the last weeks as well.
We have also had a number of thefts of Nintendo Wii, various handheld games consoles, camcorders and mobile phones.
Could you please report anything suspicious, whether it be young people hanging around schools/buildings or if you hear of someone selling a 'cheap' laptop or other item in the area. We have serial numbers or distinguishing marks for most of the computers so it will be easy to identify whether one is stolen or not.
You can speak to one of the team by leaving a message on the email below or by leaving a message at High Peak Community Housing office on Winster Mews.
If you would rather call Crimestoppers you can do, on 0800 555 111, this can be done anonymously if you wish.
