Spate of burglaries sweeps Stratford district

BURGLARS have been targeting businesses across the district.

A number of premises in rural towns and villages including Bidford, Alcester and Harbury were raided over the weekend.

On Friday (August 2) at around 3.30am a gang of men was seen breaking into a shop in Alcester, with one man carrying a crowbar. Several items were stolen before the burglars fled in dark grey Audi along Church Street.

Shortly after midnight, the next day, around five men smashed their way into a shop in Bidford and fled in a small dark hatchback.

And early this morning (Monday) at 2.30am police were called to shop in Mill Street in Harbury where windows had been smashed and cash stolen.
