‘A large amount’ of cash and gift vouchers taken after overnight burglary.
A safe containing a large amount of cash plus gift vouchers has been stolen from Merry Harriers garden centre near Woolsery.
Thieves smashed in a glass front door overnight on Sunday between 5pm and 1am, and forced two internal doors before making off with the heavy four foot steel safe.
Police said it contained a ‘substantial’ amount of cash as well as £300 in gift vouchers, plus a Barclay business cheque book plus debit card.
Anyone who saw any suspect vehicles in the area of the garden centre overnight on Sunday, or anyone offered Merry Harriers gift vouchers of uncertain origin, is asked to contact police.
