Police are appealing for information after a burglary at an Ann Summers store in Portsmouth.

At some time between 11pm on Saturday, October 29 and 6.30am on Sunday, October 30, thieves broke into the store in Commercial Road.

The offenders, described as a group of males, got in via the back of the store and removed high value items from the shelves. The items stolen are estimated to be worth around £30,000

DC Lee Parker, said: “This appears to have been an organised operation carried out at night with very few people around to witness what happened, or disturb them.  At this time it is not known whether it is a one off or part of a larger series of burglaries taking place, however, this is something we are looking in to.  If anyone say anything suspicous please get in touch with us.

“It appears that a lot of the stolen items were security tagged.  If anybody is offered any of these items for sale please contact the police.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact PC Mathias at Southsea Police Station on 101 or via the website.

You can also call the charity Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where information can be left anonymously.
