Warning after money stolen from Seaford business

Police in Seaford are warning the owners of commercial premises, particularly restaurants, to be on their guard after two businesses were targeted in the town, with one having money swiped from the till.

Between 12.30am and 10am on Thursday May 30 an attempt was made to force open a rear door to the Shahjahan restaurant in the High Street. Entry wasn’t gained and the lock to the rear door held despite being bent back.

On Friday May 31 the New Dynasty Restaurant in Claremont Road was burgled between 12.05am and 8.30am. Again a rear door was tampered with and this time the offender(s) got into the business and stole a small amount of cash from the till.

Police are appealing for witnesses, particularly from any residents who may have been woken up by the noise of the doors being forced.

PCSO Cathy Clarke said, “Most commercial premises and restaurants do not leave cash on the premises overnight and I am visiting all those in the town centre to make sure that they do not.

“If you live in the town centre and hear or see anything suspicious overnight contact the police using the emergency number or if you have any other information let us know using the 101 number.”

Any information about the burglary and attempted burglary ring 101 quoting serial 0343 of 31/5.
