Thieves steal com­puter in break-in at Univer­sal Con­nec­tions

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

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.
