Police have launched an appeal for people with information to come forward after thieves broke in to the Melbourn Co-op to steal cigarettes on two consecutive days this week.
The first break-in happened on Monday at about 4am, when three offenders made off with a large quantity of cigarettes from the High Street shop.
And the following day between 1am and 1.30am around four offenders smashed the window panel at the front of the shop, also took cigarettes, and left in a dark vehicle.
One Melbourn resident told the Crow: “I think people in the village are becoming very uneasy.
“These sorts of crimes are happening all too frequently now.
You may also want to watch:
“Before, there was never much trouble, never many problems.
“It’s not the village it was. I think it’s outsiders coming in to ruin our area – it’s very sad.”
