Thief steals disabled boy’s computer from day care

By Brandigal (Donna)     Feb 20, 2007 in Crime
A new low, stealing from a child with Downs Syndrome.
A 18 year old was arrested iand charged n Cape Breton with theft and break and enter and 2 breach of probation in a break in at a Daycare. A specially programmed computer that belonged to Nathan MacMullen who is 4 years old was stolen.
The computer has not been recovered yet. The thief knew it was for a child because it was on a low table. They believe he sold the computer.
The parents of the boy had bought the computer for their son. It helps him to be able to interact with other kids. Its used to teach him and help with his motor skills as well. They even stole the keyboard and the speakers as well, leaving nothing behind.
Police said the daycare has been targeted before with windows being broken and a wheelchair ramp destroyed.
A K-9 unit was used to catch the 18 year old. They tracked his footprints and scent.
It would be nice whoever bought this computer, if they returned it to the child. But i am sure they are afraid of being charged for receiving stolen goods. They had to know it was stolen.
