“Crimes such as this are unacceptable as they have a serious impact on small business owners and communities. Police are committed to working with the community to prevent crime, however should a crime be committed they work tirelessly to hold those responsible to account,” said Detective Amy Bryant.

Crime prevention is not something Police can do alone, it requires commitment and support from the community. Should you see something suspicious in your community don’t hesitate, call Police immediately on 111.
