Thieves break in to pubs at Molland and Bampton in the same night.

CASH, a computer and electrical equipment was stolen from the London Inn at Molland near South Molton overnight on Saturday, October 5.

Sometime between 12.30 and 8.30am a window was forced open and the thieves gained entry into the dining room, taking more than £1,000 in cash, a computer, Apple laptop, a Sony digital camera, an iPod Touch plus a set of chef’s knives.

Police said it is being linked with a burglary the same night at the Swan Hotel, Bampton. The same method of entry was used and cash stolen.

Anyone with any information on either crime is asked to call PC Nick Rowell by dialling 101 and quoting CS/13/467.
