Police investigate break-in at cafe in Leighton Buzzard

The owner of Sorelli Cafe in Leighton Buzzard is appealing for the public’s help after the cafe was broken into on Monday morning.

They have released CCTV footage of the incident in the hope that someone may have seen something before or after the break-in, which happened on the High Street just after 12am.
Bedfordshire Police are investigating the incident but the business believes more can be done by police.
The offenders broke in through the front door, turned off the CCTV, caused a mess inside and then stole a bag of change.
A spokesperson for Sorelli said: “The staff came in and someone had used some cutters to cut the padlocks off the shutter and climbed through the window.
“We saw two of them on bikes and think that one was keeping watch as one of them comes in and turns off the CCTV.
“They made a right mess in here and they smashed one of the internal doors, but all they took was a bag of coppers that was probably less than £20 and three half full bottles of spirits.
“This is the second time it has happened here, it may be the same people as last time, but again it seems like the police can not do anything about it.
“The police did not seem interested when they came to take forensics, and there have been a spate of burglaries in the area again. The businesses feel like the police are not doing anything to stop this from happening, again.”
A spokesman for Bedfordshire Police said: “The offenders broke in to the premises and caused some criminal damage before stealing a small amount of cash.
“Forensic officers have attended the scene and the enquiries are ongoing.”
If anyone has any information about the incident, call police on 101, quoting reference 40/43129/18.
