First published in Devon

 Police are hunting for burglars who broke into sheds at Hazeldown Primary School in Teignmouth.

The offenders struck overnight on Tuesday, December 4 and forced their way into two sheds in the school grounds.

They stole two STIHL leaf blowers, one with a vaccum collection bag, plus three petrol cans containing fuel.

The leaf blowers both have black handles and a white motor section with an orange-coloured patch. The petrol cans were green, red and grey.

Police are appealing for information from the public about the break-in which happened some time between 8.30pm on 4 December and 7.30am the next day.

They are particularly keen to speak to anyone who saw a white van going into the school grounds just after midnight.

Anyone with information about the break-in or the van should contact police on 101, quoting reference JG/12/2114.
