Officers are appealing for witnesses and information after burglars broke into a charity shop in Beeston and stole cash from a safe.

It happened at the Cancer Research UK store in High Road between 3.17pm on Sunday (3 December 2017) and 3am on Monday (4 December 2017).

The offenders had removed the safe from the store before forcing it open.

Inspector Steve Wragg, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: "To stoop so low to burgle a charity is simply despicable. I’d like to reassure the community that we're working to identify the person or people responsible.

"I urge anyone who was in the area and noticed anything suspicious to call us, particularly anyone who witnessed suspicious activity on Willoughby Street where the safe was recovered. Your information could really help our enquiries."

Anyone with any information is urged to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 56 of 4 December 2017, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Incident Number: 


101 is the number to call when you need to contact Nottinghamshire Police and it’s less urgent than a 999 call. Calls cost 15p, no matter how long the call lasts.
