An investigation has been launched by Newquay CID following two burglaries that have taken place at businesses in Newquay recently. One took place at Whiskers Wine and Coffee Bar on Gover Lane in Newquay, overnight on Friday 19th August.
The offender forced entry to the rear of the premises and once inside stole a large quantity of cash from the till and the safe. A number of other items were also taken including Panasonic Lumix digital cameras, Bose speakers, Bose headphones, two iPods and a pair of designer Von Zipper sunglasses.
Police would like to hear from anyone who was in the area between 2-5am on Friday 19th August. The crime number for this case is CR/57683/16.
During the same night The Cornish Candy Shoppe on Fore Street was also burgled by forcing entry to the rear of the building and cash was from the till. This occurred between the hours of 9.20pm on Thursday 18th August 2016 and 9am on Friday 19th August. The crime number for this case is CR/57690/16.
Detective Constable Nikki West from Newquay CID said: “As well as these two crimes, we are aware that during this summer there have been further burglaries at businesses within Newquay.
“We are currently keeping an open mind on if these are linked, but we are also appealing direct to business owners to ensure their security is the best it can be. This means ensuring all doors and windows are locked, that cash should never be left on the premises and wherever possible, CCTV installed and in good working order.
“If anyone has any information that can help us with our investigations, or have been offered any of the items that have been stolen from Whiskers then we ask that you contact the police immediately.”
Please call police on 101 or via email on [email protected] quoting the relevant crime number. Information can also be passed anonymously to Crimestoppers, by calling 0800 555 111 or reporting online at www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
