Thieves steal computer in break-in at Universal Connections
Youngsters and staff at a Rutherglen youth club were shocked to find their base had been broken into.
Yobs broke into the Universal Connections club on Burnhill Road, stealing two Apple Mac computers.
The facility is run by South Lanarkshire Council, who were disappointed to hear the news.
Anne Donaldson, Head of Education said: “The staff and young people who attend Universal Connections in Burnhill, Rutherglen were angry and understandably upset at the damage caused following a break-in the early hours of Monday morning.
“As well as the damage a number of items were stolen including two Apple iMacs which are well used by the young people who use the facilities.
“Council staff worked hard on Monday to clear-up and repair the damage so that young people could still use the centre.
“It is extremely disappointing that a well used facility by local young people has suffered this type of break-in and to see the distress it causes is heart-breaking.
“We hope that anyone with information will let the police know as they carry out their investigation.”
Anyone with information should contact Rutherglen Police on 101, or call Crimestoppers free and anonymously on 0800 555 111.
