"Hutt Valley Police seeking information regarding arson"
Hutt Valley Police are seeking information following an arson and burglary at St Joseph’s Primary School in Upper Hutt.
Police are investigating a burglary at the school on the night of 27 February in which six school iPads were taken.
This comes days after staff and students were devastated by a fire that severely damaged playground equipment at the school on Sunday 25 February.
“The fire, which we believe was deliberately lit, caused major damage to the playground.
The school has now been the target of further criminal offending this week with a burglary - this is another blow for the school and community,” Detective Sergeant Richard Orr says.
If anyone has any further information in relation to the burglary or arson, they are encouraged to contact Upper Hutt Police on (04) 527 2300 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
