Rochester police are appealing for information following a break-in at St Joseph’s Primary School last night.

Leading Senior Constable John Atley said $300 worth of damage was done to the roller door of the canteen during the break-in but nothing was stolen.

He said the incident happened between 5.30pm yesterday and 9am this morning.

Leading Sen. Constable Atley said it was the second week in a row the school was broken into.

He said last week offenders stole a small quantity of drinks.

He believed the offenders were in search of alcohol which was not kept on the school premises.

‘‘I would like to remind residents the school is not a playground after hours and anyone caught on the grounds could be charged with trespassing,’’ Leading Sen. Constable Atley said.

Any information on this crime can be reported to the Rochester police on 5484 1100.
