Co-op tar­geted in ram raid

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

PO­LICE are ap­peal­ing for wit­nesses to an at­tempted ram raid.

The in­ci­dent hap­pened at 4am yesterday (Au­gust 4) at the Co-op­er­a­tive Food store on Lon­don Road, Mac­cles­field.

It is be­lieved that a ve­hi­cle was used to try and gain ac­cess to the rear of the shop via the cus­tomer car park.

The shop was tem­po­rar­ily closed while po­lice in­ves­ti­gated and a large part of the rear of the build­ing was boarded up.

A spokesper­son for Co-op said: “There was an in­ci­dent in the early hours of this morn­ing (Tues­day, 4 Au­gust) at around 4am. A ve­hi­cle has dam­aged the rear of The Co-op­er­a­tive’s Lon­don Road, Mac­cles­field store. The store has re-opened, and we would like to apol­o­gise to our cus­tomers for any in­con­ve­nience while it was tem­po­rar­ily closed to al­low the Po­lice to in­ves­ti­gate.”

Any­one who wit­nesses the in­ci­dent, or who may have seen the ve­hi­cle, is asked to call Cheshire Po­lice on 101.

Al­ter­na­tively, call the char­ity Crimestop­pers line on 0800 555 111 where in­for­ma­tion can be left anony­mously.
