THIEVES broke into Woolworth's in Royston at the weekend and stole computer games valued at £6,000.

The incident, which took place at about 5.20am on Sunday, saw damage caused to the front windows of the High Street shop.

Store manager Mark Halfacre said: "They pulled out the window using suction pads.

"Even though we have an alarm system which triggers smoke to be released, they made straight for the games section. It seems they knew where they were going."

About 300 games were taken.

Mr Halfacre said that Woolworth's was considering installing extra security measures, after a spate of recent incidents.

"We're looking at getting enhanced closed circuit television, and possibly shutters over the windows," he said.

"It may not look great for the High Street, but we have been targeted a lot lately."

Anyone with information should contact Herts Police on 01992 533002.
