Burglars target bookmakers on Grandstand Road
BURGLARS yesterday made off with a large amount of cash from a Hereford bookmakers.
The intruders struck at Coral on Grandstand Road between 2.30am and 3.30am.
The safe that the money was inside was also taken, while damage said to be totalling thousands of pounds was caused to the shop.
Detective Constable Charlotte Wells is investigating the incident. She said: “I would urge anyone who was in the area at the time – on their way home from a night out perhaps – and saw any suspicious people or vehicles near the bookmakers, to call us.
“The safe from the shop was also stolen and it is possible that this will be dumped by the thieves at some point, so I would ask people to contact us if one turns up near them.”
