‘Be suspicious if you are offered cheap cigarettes’
ISLANDERS should be suspicious if they are offered cigarettes for sale at a knock-down price, Guernsey Police crime reduction adviser Andy Goodall has said, after £750-worth of cigarettes were stolen from Iceland.
The incident happened between 2.45am and 3.10am on Tuesday. Two men forced entry into the Les Camps du Moulin shop in St Martin’s.
The burglars broke a large glass panel in the door facing the car park, which cannot be easily seen from the road.
The offenders are believed to have been wearing dark clothing, face masks and gloves.
The incident follows nearly £900-worth of cigarettes, tobacco and smoking accessories being stolen from the Vale Iceland branch last year. The perpetrator was later sentenced to eight months in prison.
Any information can be passed to PC 115 Blondel at Guernsey Police on 725111. Alternatively, people can call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
