Officers in South Aberdeenshire are appealing for information following a vandalism at a local primary school.
Sometime between Friday 7 December and the evening of Sunday 9 December 2018 damage was caused to the outdoor play area at Auchenblae Primary School.
As a result toys were thrown onto a roof, a dolls house which had been gifted to the school was damaged and planters were overturned.
Investigating officer PC Wayne Smart said: “As you can imagine the staff and pupils at Auchenblae Primary have been extremely upset by the damage to their school. The children were very much looking forward to setting up a fairy garden for Christmas using the dolls house as the garden’s centre piece.
“The mindless acts of others has impacted on the fun that the children were looking forward to and is particularly disappointing.
“I am appealing to anyone who either heard or saw anything over the weekend or who has heard about it since then, to come forward with any information they have.
“This type of behaviour of damaging a school playground, which is enjoyed by so many, will not be tolerated. I would urge anyone with information to do the right thing and call us with details.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 quoting reference 0635 of 10 December. Alternatively, to remain anonymous call the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
