MILWAUKEE (AP) — What would be the best prize ever if you were a child burglar? How about milk, Popsicles, paper, crayons and Play-Doh?
That is what police say a pair of boys took during two break-ins at a Milwaukee day care center.
An 8-year-old and 10-year-old broke into Day Care Services for Children, Inc. on Sunday.
A witness photographed the 8- and 10-year-old boys breaking a window and leaving with two large bags around 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Schwartz said. The boys also set off the day care's alarm, she said.
They allegedly grabbed paper, crayons and Play-Doh.
I know a lot of people will roll their eyes and say "Big deal" when hearing of this, but it is more serious than it looks.
These kids are breaking into a locked building to steal items. If they are not disciplined properly, what is to keep them from repeating this later in life, for more expensive items? This sounds like a parenting problem to me.
Just my opinion.
