Shock as Co-Op store is raided
As the Forum went to press, news emerged about the theft of the cashpoint from the larger Co-Op. Police have since recovered the stolen ATM - the thieves were unable to obtain any money from it.
Mayor, Ian Cooper, said “This raid shows that Shipston is not immune to the criminal activities we hear about elsewhere. I am grateful to the police for their swift response and hope the perpetrators will be brought to justice quickly.”
Police enquiries are ongoing and witnesses with information should call 101 quoting incident 18 of 18 February 2018.
