Police appeal after 30 Falmouth burglaries in 6 months

Police are warning Falmouth business owners to be vigilant and security-conscious after a spate of burglaries in the town. 30 small businesses and clubs have been targeted over the past six months.

Police advise that cash should be kept in a safe, tools and ladders locked away, CCTV installed and adequate, and that any objects near the premises that could be used to force entry should be removed.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the police on 101, quoting police reference GP/14/818, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

Whilst this is a particularly rare occurrence in Falmouth and the town is still a safe place to live, it would be wrong for the police not to inform the public about what has been occurring. I would therefore ask, that if anyone sees anything suspicious or if businesses or clubs have customers or visitors who appear to be paying particular attention to the premises, then please report this to the police as soon as possible. Any information, no matter how small, may just add the missing link which will then greatly assist our investigations into the current series of burglaries.
