Burglary at Lancaster pawnbrokers

POLICE are appealing for information following a burglary at a pawnbrokers shop in Lancaster.

Officers were called to John Ramsden Pawnbrokers in Sir Simon’s Arcade just after 10.30pm on Tuesday.

It is believed the offenders somehow made a hole in the roof and climbed through it into the loft space before accessing the shop itself.

Once inside they smashed a number of display cabinets and made off with a number of designer watches.

Det Sgt Steve Craig said: “I would appeal to anyone who was in the area on Tuesday evening who saw anybody acting suspiciously to contact police.

“I would also like to speak with anybody who thinks they have information which could assist this investigation.”

Anybody with any information can contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at Crimestoppers-uk.org.
