Thief who stole milk from nursery makes donation

A Trowbridge nursery has gained a welcome donation from a milk thief who didn't realise it was small children that his actions were affecting.The man in his mid forties from Trowbridge was caught by officers stealing milk from outside the nursery this morning.

His arrest follows a number of reports in recent weeks of milk having gone missing from the nursery's twice weekly deliveries.

Following a discussion with staff the matter was resolved by local resolution with the man making a £200 donation to the nursery.

Community Beat Manager Jamie Darvill said:'Local Resolution allows us the discretion to deal with minor offences in a way that recompenses the victim and allows the offender to make a meaningful apology.'
