OFFICERS from Cheadle Town Neighbourhood Team have been investigating a series of break ins and thefts from sheds, garages and schools around Cheadle Town over the last few months.
A 14 year old male was arrested after he was caught by Police sneaking into a house on The Birches, Cheadle and stealing money.
As a result of further enquiries he has admitted his involvement in a number of other offences such as breaking into two sheds on Baddeley Street, Cheadle where two mountain bikes and a remote control car was taken, breaking into Cheadle Academy school with the intention of stealing money, theft of a bike from Painsley School and also attempted theft from a shed at Bishop Rawley Primary School.
The young male involved, with the support of his family, is engaging with the Staffordshire Police Youth Offending Team.
The intention is to prevent any future offending. In order to make amends for the offences committed he has to engage in a specific offending behaviour programme to reduce re-offending and to make amends to his victims and the wider community.
Much of the stolen property has been recovered and returned to the owners.
Investigations are still ongoing to identify any others that may have been involved in the commission of the offences and anyone with information is encouraged to contact
