Festive thief heads for the sheds

Published:  27 December, 2010

BANBURY: A thief stole three trolley loads from B&Q in Marley Way, Banbury, on Thursday by cutting a wire fence and passing goods to an accomplice waiting outside.

PC Deborah Clements said: "It is believed the men got away with around £3000 worth of goods from the store. After they had browsed the store and loaded up their trolleys with items they should have paid for they walked to the garden centre area of the shop, cut through a fence and loaded up a white Ford Galaxy with their goods."

Police believe the same three men returned to the store a week later to try their luck again, loading up another trolley with items from the shelves, but failed to steal anything.
