Po­lice probe raid on firm’s premises

The Galloway News - - MULTI-USE HUB -

A Carsluith busi­ness­man is count­ing the cost of a break– in at his premises at the week­end.

Gal­loway Smoke­house owner AlanWat­son found a door bro­ken at the site and cash miss­ing.

MrWat­son told the News:“When I came in on Sun­day morn­ing the door the door was smashed. “Some­one had bro­ken in and taken some cash. “When I re­alised what had hap­pened I im­me­di­ately called the po­lice.”

Po­lice Scot­land said “a large quan­tity of cash”was stolen in the raid.

The business was hit some­time be­tween 8pm on Satur­day and 8.45am the next day.

MrWat­son said:“It’s the world we live in. It would be nice to catch them but whether they will or not I don’t know. We are try­ing to carry on. It’s all you can do.”

Con­sta­ble Gavin Maxwell said:“We would like to hear from any­one who may have any in­for­ma­tion about this break-in to get in touch through the 101 num­ber.

“In par­tic­u­lar we would like to hear from any­one who may have been in the vicin­ity of the premises on Satur­day evening or early Sun­day morn­ing.

“Call­ers should quote the ref­er­ence num­ber 1408 of Septem­ber 2.” The rob­bery was one of two in the area the same night. Cash and pol­ish prod­ucts were stolen from Al­li­son Motors at Bladoch,Wig­town.

A Po­lice Scot­land spokesman said:“It’s not an area that gets a lot of crime so to get two in the same night seems a bit much.

“There is a strong pos­si­bil­ity the two are linked but we are keep­ing an open mind.”

Calls re­gard­ing theWig­town crime should quote the ref­er­ence num­ber 1460.
