Officers are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward after Christmas lights were stolen from a Poole childrenâ€™s charity.
At 8.55pm on Tuesday 9 December 2014, thieves stole Christmas lights from the front garden of Juliaâ€™s House Childrenâ€™s Hospice in Springdale Road in the Broadstone area of the town.
Police Constable Garry Weston, of Ferndown police, said: â€œWe 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 Juliaâ€™s House.
â€œThe van left the scene and the offender was seen to walk into the grounds of Juliaâ€™s house before leaving carrying the lights.
â€œThis was a despicable crime on a hospice which offers day and respite care for children with life limiting illnesses.
â€œI urge anyone who saw the incident or has any information about those responsible to contact Dorset Police in confidence.â€
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.
