South Cambs: Thieves Smash Into Shops

Thieves have smashed their way into three shops in South Cambridgeshire, using crowbars and wearing balaclavas.

The offenders broke into the Falkner Store, in Sawston, at about 1.30am on Saturday (July 13) then stole alcohol and cigarettes before making off.

The Bakery, in High Street, Linton, was also targeted between 3pm on Friday (July 12) and 5.50am on Saturday (July 13), where cash was stolen, and cigarettes were stolen from the Co-op in Linton at about 3.20am on Saturday (July 13).

Police are linking all three break-ins and officers are keen to hear from anyone who saw a silver Subaru Impreza estate in the area.

Detective Constable Stuart Thorburn, investigating, said: "I would appeal for anyone with any information about these break-ins, or if they have been offered cheap cigarettes for sale, to call police.

"We are checking CCTV and carrying out local enquries, but we are urging people with information to come forward as these crimes have had a real impact on the local communities and local businesses."

Anyone with information should contact DC Thorburn on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
