Cash stolen in Ledbury council office break-in

First published in News by

A SMALL amount of cash was stolen when thieves broke into council offices in Ledbury last night.

Herefordshire Council’s customer service centre in St Katherines on the High Street was targeted just before 11pm.

Police believe intruders entered the offices by breaking a window before stealing cash from a cupboard.

PC Pete Webb, from Ledbury police station, said: “In light of this incident, I would like to remind local businesses to review their security measures and ensure that no money is kept in offices overnight.

"This office building is in the centre of a public car park. I would appeal to anyone who may have used the car park that evening and noticed any suspicious activity or any people hanging around the area in the hours leading up to the burglary, to call us.”

Anyone with information can call 0300 333 3000 quoting reference 71S 030113.

When you say a small amount of Cash stolen, do you mean like 30 million or something ? cause the council have not got a clue about the value of money.

Most businesses know not to leave cash on the premises overnight. As we have said countless times before: the council couldn't run a sweetie shop.
