Wombwell Charity Shop Burgled Again

A CHARITY shop was burgled almost a year to the day since it was first targeted.

The Age UK charity shop, on High Street, Wombwell, was broken into on March 3 with burglars getting in through the roof.

A year ago they got in the same way, but only managed to steal 10p from a donations box.

Hugh Forde, managing director of retail at Age UK, said: "Thankfully no-one was injured, however the takings were stolen and there was damage to the shop and stock.

"It is a terrible shame when things like this happen, as Age UK shops rely on donations to help raise vital funds to support older people."

Police are investigating.

What confuses me is the High Street had 10 tens of thousand of pounds worth of CCTV cameras fitted a few years ago it seems these cameras are monitored.

Can some one from BMBC or who works for the Police or indeed one of the highest paid Councillors that alleged represents Wombwell people Who claimed just short of £30000 last year for his volunteer services

Set a man trap ( or scum trap ) , booby trap, or have a large hungry animal sleeping on the premises.............something to greet them as they get into the shop. Sorted. Simples.
