TWO men have been jailed after breaking into a primary school in Slough.

Ricky Bowden, 52, and Mark Robson, 36, broke into Darul Madinah School in Chalvey on June 27 and July 2 this year.

They stole laptops, cash and other 'high-value goods' in June and they stole children’s toiletries in July.

CCTV enquiries led to the men being identified and both were arrested on July 4 and charged the following day.

Bowden and Robson, both of no fixed abode, were sentenced to 14 months imprisonment each after they both pleaded guilty to two counts each of burglary other than in a dwelling.

Detective Constable Sikander Channa, based at Slough Police Station, said: “Burglary has a significant impact on our communities.

"However, what makes this case even more shocking is that the offenders selfish and criminal behaviour affected the day-to-day running of the primary school.

"Thames Valley Police are committed to protecting and safeguarding its communities.

"It is clear that the defendants in this case had little regard to the harm they caused to a school, its teachers and pupils and I am satisfied that they have been jailed for their crimes.”
