Exmouth: burglars flee empty handed
11:00 01 January 2013
Burglars who broke into an Exmouth garden centre, but left empty-handed after being disturbed, are being sought by the police.
Police are appealing for help to catch burglars who broke into an Exmouth garden centre.
Officers said an attempt was made to steal items from Kings Garden and Leisure, in Hulham Road, sometime between 10pm on Sunday, December 9 and 3am the following morning.
PC Adam Johnson, investigating, is appealing for public help to catch the culprits.
He would like to hear from anyone with information about the crime, or from anyone who may have seen or heard someone acting suspiciously at the time of the break-in.
PC Johnson said: “The offenders were disturbed by a member of the public so left without being able to take anything.
“By the time police arrived they had fled the scene and the vehicle they were travelling in, a silver Ford Focus which was stolen earlier in the evening, was found crashed near Venn Ottery.”
Anyone with information to help police is asked to call 101.
