Ipswich: Charity shop forced to close due to break-in
An Ipswich charity shop was forced to close for the day following a burglary.
A sign next to a boarded-up door at the Cancer Research shop in Westgate Street told customers that due to “unforeseen circumstances” it would be closed all day yesterday.
Police are today appealing for information on the burglary.
A spokesman for Suffolk police said: “Offenders broke into the Cancer Research UK shop on Westgate Street between 4.15pm on Sunday 19 May and 6.45am on Monday 20 May 2013.
“Glass in the front door was smashed to gain entry, and then the shop was searched, with jewellery, a tablet computer and vouchers stolen and cash taken from the till, a charity box and a safe.”
