Norwalk police hunt preschool thief

Norwalk police are searching for a woman who apparently stole about $300 from a preschool.

It happened Tuesday morning at at Room to Grow on East Avenue in Norwalk.

A surveillance camera recorded the theft.

A woman rolled in her backpack and then at some point loaded up a water jug with the money before heading back out.

The preschool says the money was going to be used for programs for the kids at the not-for-profit day care center.
