Fishponds business hit by burglars

PAINT, brushes and rollers worth thousands of pounds were stolen from a decorating business in Fishponds over the bank holiday weekend.

Police say electronic equipment and clothing were also taken in the break-in at the Crown Decorating Centre on New Station Road, close to the Royal Mail depot, sometime between 2.15pm on Saturday April 30 and 7.30am on Monday.

The burglars got in through a rear fire door, before loading the stolen goods into a vehicle through the large shutters at the front of the warehouse (pictured above).

A police spokesperson said: "Police would like to hear from anyone who noticed any suspicious activity near the premises, which is close to the Bristol to Bath Railway Path."

Witnesses and anyone with CCTV, doorbell or dashcam footage which could help the investigation should call 101 and quote the crime reference number 5222 103 350.
