Burglars have broken into Malmesbury Garden Centre for the second time this year. This time, they stole more than £2,000 worth of goods.
Thieves stole 150 bird feeders, worth £1,200 in total and a barbecue worth £370. They also took music horns worth £356 and plant pots that make up a total loss of £2,191.
CCTV captured images of the group of thugs cutting open locks on the back gates. It also showed the thieves driving their cars in to get away with the goods.
This is the second burglary in four months for the garden centre. In early July thieves took the Emergency Services Show’s PA system from the locked container on site. Police has so far failed to track down the offenders.
Manager of Malmesbury Garden Centre, Graham Harris, said: “It’s getting very annoying.
“I don’t know why they keep targeting us. We’re only a medium-sized independent business.
“Thankfully there wasn’t more for them to steal but it still has a significant impact.
“Hopefully the police are able to track them down this time. They didn’t seem to have much to go on last time.”
In the early hours of Sunday morning police took forensic evidence. They’re still investigating the burglary.
