Staff praised after raid

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - Home&abroad -

STAFF em­ployed by a Perthshire butcher have been praised for the way they re­sponded to a raid on the shop.

Thieves stole cash and a safe from James Ewart Ltd premises on Com­mer­cial Street, Alyth, overnight be­tween De­cem­ber 27 and 28.

It’s thought they used a crow­bar to take the front door off and dam­age the tills.

Shop owner Alan Kennedy said he didn’t want to re­veal how much money had been stolen or how much cash had been stored in the safe.

How­ever, he took time to praise his team.

“It was pretty mis­er­able to have the dis­rup­tion of this at such a busy time of year, when many peo­ple were depend­ing on us, but the staff were fab­u­lous, tidy­ing up the dam­age and get­ting us up and run­ning again,” he said.

“I’m really grate­ful to the staff who knuck­led down and got us back in busi­ness.”
