Thieves Who Stole From Children's Center Didn't Watch Enough After-School Specials

The universe must have something against students who live in the canyons. Shuttering a 105-year elementary school apparently wasn't enough. 

Sometime after Silverado Children's Center was closed at 6 p.m. Thursday, someone (or a band of assholic someones) broke in and allegedly stole $100, two printers and a computer.

For shits and giggles, the place was trashed. 

The $100 was supposed to be used for a trips to Knott's Berry Farm.

Chay Peterson, who teaches at the center, which is located off of Santiago Canyon Road, said an office laminator was thrown against a wall and broken, and the portable phones are no longer working. She said the thieves left behind a crowbar, and authorities are taking finger prints.

The center is run on a shoe-string budget, with teachers, parents and volunteers running fundraisers and performing all the maintenance work.

On behalf of humanity, we say to the burglars, "Fuck you very much!"
