Police concerned burglars could start fresh thieving spree in Maldon's High Street
Angry traders are calling for more visible policing after concerns were raised that burglars could start a fresh thieving spree.
Crooks raided Maldon Craft Shop and Paper Kisses card shop in the High Street over the Christmas period, stealing cash, charity boxes and even a kettle.
Inspector Chris Kilgallen, of Maldon police, said: “We may have the start of a potential trend of burglaries into premises along the High Street.
“In November 2012 we had a similar sort of thing and we didn’t identify suspects for it.”
Last Christmas more than six shops were raided for money, a laptop and even food.
Alan Richardson, whose shop Riverside Cycle Centre was targeted last year, said: “I am not surprised it’s happening again, nowadays there’s no police presence.
“There needs to be more so there is some sort of deterrent.”
