A seven-year-old boy out shopping with his mother at a Friargate charity shop had his iPad stolen, according to police.

Seven-year-old Jaxon Greenhalgh was visiting the Serve Our Community shop with his mother, Joanne, at lunchtimne on Saturday, February 3.

Jaxon had placed the tablet to one side and forgot to retrieve it after looking at a pull-along toy.

When Jaxon’s mother returned to the shop to find the iPad, she noticed the device was missing, claiming thieves were responsible for its disappearance.

Joanne has issued a statement to the thieves, asking them to return the device to her son.

She told the Lancashire Evening Post (LEP):

“He is a very upset little boy and is desperate to get his iPad back that Father Christmas brought him. He keeps asking for it all the time.”

A spokesman for the police stated the tablet is a grey iPad Air 2 with 32GB.
