Falmouth kebab shop targeted by raiders
KEBAB house owners have been warned to be on their guard after tens of thousands of pounds worth of equipment was stolen in a raid in Falmouth.
Burglars struck the Falmouth Grill in Arwenack Street between 4am and 6.30am on Monday, February 18, clearing out almost £20,000 worth of equipment from the shop.
The thieves used what is believed to be a Renault Box or Luton van with a hydraulic tailgate – vehicles that are capable of carrying more than a ton.
Detective Sergeant Martin Roberts, from Falmouth CID, said the burglars were on site for more than two hours and several vehicles and passersby would have seen them.
“The offenders entered the shop through the front door and then proceeded to empty the place and load up the van,” he said.
“We are aware from watching the CCTV that that vehicle moved a number of times for other traffic to get passed, so I’m appealing to those other members of the public that were in Arwenack Street between four in the morning and 6.30am.”
Adding: “What we are looking for is a number plate.”
