Fishing equipment worth thousands of pounds has been stolen from a shop in Meldreth.
Thieves broke into JKL Tackle in Whitecroft Road on Thursday at about 7.30pm and took equipment including rods and bite alarms.
Members of the public are being urged to contact police if they see anyone selling brand new fishing equipment from the back of a vehicle or at a car boot sale.
PCSO Leanne Fisher said: “The fishing equipment is worth between £7,000 and £10,000 and the owners are understandably extremely upset and shocked. The business is their livelihood.
“Please be vigilant when purchasing new equipment. If the price seems too good to be true then it probably is.”
