Business owners in Orford have been warned to check their security measures after safes were targeted by thieves at three venues in the town.
It was reported last week that £3,500 was stolen from a safe at the Butley Orford Oysterage restaurant. The safe was pulled down from a wall and broken into between 4pm on Sunday, November 9 and 9am the following day.
The safe was found abandoned on Tunstall Road, Tunstall on Monday morning.
But yesterday police said a small digital safe was stolen at the Orford Recreation Ground in Munday’s Lane. A locked door was forced through before the safe and money left inside a cupboard were taken. In total, around £220 was stolen during the break-in, which took place between 11.30pm on Monday, November 3 and 10am on Friday, November 7.
Meanwhile, a failed attempt to steal a safe from Orford Castle took place on Saturday, shortly after midnight. Police said nothing is believed to have been stolen during the break-in.
