6:55am 21st February 2014
Detectives investigating a burglary at a shop in York city centre are appealing for some potentially vital witnesses to come forward.
Sometime between 5.50am and 6am on Tuesday 18 February 2014, thieves broke into the Cornish Pasty Bakery on Colliergate and stole a safe containing a quantity of cash.
Following extensive enquiries officers have established that the suspects were loitering outside the shop prior to the incident.
During this time two cars and a bicycle passed the scene of the burglary and officers believe that the occupants of the vehicles and the cyclist may have information vital to their investigation.
Detective Sergeant Matt Dodson, of York CID, said: “We know that the offenders spent some time hanging around outside the shop prior to the burglary and that a number of people travelled past at that time.
“I am appealing to anyone who travelled along Colliergate prior to the burglary taking place and saw anyone acting suspiciously to contact the police or Crimestoppers as soon as possible.”
Anyone who can help officers with their enquiries is urged to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101 – select option 2 – and ask for York CID.
Alternatively, information can be emailed to YorkCID@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk
If you prefer not to give your name, Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.
