Money stolen from Cloudnine in Market Deeping

Have your say

Thieves stole hundreds of pounds from a shop during a distraction burglary.

The money was taken from the till at Cloudnine in High Street, Market Deeping, on Saturday.

The staff member in the shop at the time was distracted by the thieves, who were caught on CCTV. The CCTV images have been passed onto police.

Owner Alison Ireland said: “Cloudnine will be prosecuting and have already put measures in place to prevent a recurrence.

“This is particularly frustrating when trade for High Street shops is hard during the recession.

“We work so hard in a quiet town to keep going during a difficult recession and, of course, obstacles like this we can do without.”

Police have issued descriptions of two men they are looking for in relation to the theft. The first is white, about 5ft 7in, slim build with short gingery-blond hair wearing a red football T-shirt and jeans.

The second is white, about 5ft 9in, slim build with short, dark brown hair.

Anyone with information can call police on 101 quoting incident 333 of August 31.
