Ram-raiders smash into Littleport Costcutter and village’s Co-op is also targeted by burglars
Two Littleport shops were targeted by burglars this weekend.
The village’s branch of Costcutter was hit by ram-raiders on Saturday (December 9) before burglars targeted the Co-op store in the early hours of this morning (11).
Costcutter in Main Street was first to be hit, with three people stealing a cash machine after smashing into it in a car at around 11.15pm on Saturday. The shop was left with smashed windows and doors and a bollard outside was also knocked over.
Cigarettes were then stolen from the Co-op in Wisbech Road the following night after four people broke in at around 1.10am. The shop was closed this morning but re-opened at midday.
A police spokesman said: “Scenes of crime officers have attended both premises and investigations are ongoing.
