Pc Gavin Richardson said: “Two hours before the offence, at just after 6.30pm on April 2, two young men were seen acting suspiciously in the area, hiding from passing cars and checking security cameras before leaving. We believe they may have been making plans to return later and carry out the theft, under the cover of darkness.
“I would like to encourage anyone who saw these men earlier on the Saturday and could even identify them to get in touch. Also, if you have any other information on the crime itself and who the offenders might be, I would urge you to contact me.”
