Cumbria police investigate break in at Barrow football club
Last updated at 16:15, Wednesday, 16 July 2014
CUMBRIA police are investigating a third burglary at a Furness Sports Club.
Police are linking the break-in to two burglaries that occurred last week in Barrow and Dalton.
The attempted burglary occurred at Barrow Wanderers Football Club on Lesh Lane, Barrow-in-Furness at around 3pm on 15th July.
Offenders have forced entry through a window which sounded the alarm system. Whilst inside they have managed to disengage the electrics and attempted to break in to a gaming machine. The offenders have then fled following the key holder turning up after hearing the alarm.
Detective Inspector Amanda Sadler said:
“We appeal for the public’s help in this case. This happened in daylight hours, someone must have seen something suspicious. We would like to take this opportunity to remind premises to check there alarm systems are in full working order as they will act as a deterrent to thieves.
“We believe that yesterday’s incident is linked to the two burglaries that occurred last week and any information, no matter how small, may lead us into identifying who is responsible.”
Around £300 in cash was stolen from Dalton-in-Furness Cricket Club at around 6am this morning (10th July). Offenders damaged two gaming machines within the premises and made off in the direction of Queens Terrace. Three cash buckets were recovered by Police who were alerted by an alarm.
On the 8th July at around 4.15pm offenders stole a cash bucket from a gaming machine at Holker Old Boys Club on Rakesmoor Lane, Barrow-in-Furness. The offenders forced entry into the bar area which set off an alarm. They subsequently caused significant damage to a gaming machine in order to access the cash buckets and stole one of them before making off.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Cumbria Police on 101 and ask to speak to an officer from Barrow CID.
