Bury St Edmunds: Football clubhouse broken into twice in a day
BURGLARS have broken into a football team’s club house twice in a day.
The first raid at Bury Town’s Ram Meadow headquarters took place around 9.30am on Friday morning with the second break-in thought to have occurred in the early hours of Saturday morning.
In the second break in thieves smashed windows, emptied money from a fruit machine and stole the club safe.
According to club chairman Russell Ward, around �1,000 was stolen in all.
He said: “We are disappointed because we are all volunteers down here trying to run a football club. We do work for the community and run youth teams as well as men’s.

“It’s a bit isolated here but we haven’t had any security problems for at least ten years. The first break in was minor and we may have a witness who saw something. We are working with police to see if anything can be done.”
The disruption caused by the break-in resulted in Saturday’s match being postponed at the town centre ground. Scene-of-crime officers were still carrying out investigations and wouldn’t allow public access to the club house.
