Leicestershire Police have released CCTV of a man they would like to speak to after a black Toshiba laptop was stolen from Temple Road on Tuesday November 19 at about 3:30pm.
Rosalie Barnes, founder of the Alex Barnes Proton Therapy Charity, owns the laptop. Rosalie is also involved with the Kids ‘N’ Cancer UK charity.
Rosalie’s son, Alex, was diagnosed with a brain tumour at the age of three and underwent pioneering treatment in the US and this month at the age of 9 was given the all clear.
She said: “It is so important for me to get the laptop back as it holds vital information relating to my charity work.
“It also contains photos of when my son Alex was ill, which are very sentimental to the family. There was also a CD inside the laptop bag which contains photos taken earlier this month when Alex was given the ‘all clear’ from cancer.
“I am appealing to whoever took the laptop to have a heart and please return it to me.”
A businessman who almost went bankrupt after thieves stole more than £20,000 of equipment from his party hire shop is offering a reward to catch those responsible.
Bouncy castles and other inflatable equipment was taken from Chris Winter's lock-up in Rowley Regis in the Black Country in March.
The theives cut through a metal fence and spent 3 and a half hours removing stock. Two people were arrested but later released without charge. He's now offering £500 to anyone with information.
"Watching everything that you've worked for over a 14-15 year period being carried out through a hole in a fence and just watching it disappear you know it's devastating it really is, it's just not right that they should be allowed to walk away and devastate lives in the way they do."
