Police appeal after Portland burglary
8:58am Thursday 5th September 2013 in News
POLICE are appealing for witnesses after an alleged burglary on Portland.
It is believed a number of people forced entry into the Co-op store on Easton Square in the early hours of yesterday morning and stole alcohol before making their escape.
Detective Constable Tom Isaac, of Weymouth and Portland CID, said: "I am appealing to anyone who may have information about this burglary, or saw any suspicious behaviour to or after the incident to come forward.
"This appears to have been a planned attack on this store and the offenders have made off with a substantial amount of alcohol.
"It is believed the thieves got into a turquoise Vauxhall Corsa after committing this crime and the car is believed to have driven off at speed past Jubilee Hall."
He added: "It is also possible members of the public may be offered bottles of alcohol in strange circumstances at unusually low prices and if this happens, we would like to hear from you."
The incident happened at around 3.20am on Wednesday.
No arrests have been made and anyone with information is asked to call Dorset Police on 101.
