I notice a sad report from the Walsall Advertiser yesterday that a children’s slide was stolen from a Walsall Wood garden last Tuesday, May 17th 2016, between 11:30am and 7pm – this wasn’t a small object and must have taken some effort to nick, especially in broad daylight.
I’m intrigued as to why Staffordshire Police are dealing with this and not Walsall, but there you go.
The advertiser reports:
CALLOUS thieves stole a child’s slide a from Walsall garden prompting police to appeal for witnesses of the incident.
The green and orange slide, seven feet in height, was stolen from the rear garden of a property in Brownhills Road, Walsall Wood sometime between 11.30am and 7pm yesterday (Tuesday, May 17).
A police spokesperson said: ‘It is believed it would have needed at least two people to move the slide and anyone with any information is asked to contact Staffordshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 624 of 17th May..
Please, if you have any information, do speak to the cops. These thieves need to be caught. If you know who it might be, or if you saw anything at all, please do contact Staffordshire Police by dialling 101 or speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
