STANDISH — The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the theft of a 2-year-old autistic child’s iPad, which he used to communicate, while the Standish family was attending a funeral.

The burglary happened on Cedar Drive on April 28. The family was attending the funeral of the boy’s grandfather when somebody broke into the house during the daytime.

The stolen items also included an iPod that is used in conjunction with the iPad to help the boy communicate. The iPad was inscribed on the back with “Property of Bryant Lindsey,” according to the sheriff’s office.

The boy’s mother asked that the address and name be released in hopes of prompting the thieves to return the items, detectives said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Brian Ackerman at 774-1444, ext. 2215.
