Police investigate burglary at Bishop's Stortford phone repair shop iMobile
Mobile phones were stolen in a raid on a shop in Bishop's Stortford town centre in the early hours of Friday (July 23).
A security alarm was activated at iMobile in Potter Street just after 3am and police were called 24 minutes later.
As neighbouring businesses opened, a police officer was on guard outside the premises, which have been taped off as investigations continue. Later, police were seen taking photos at the scene, including pictures of spilled blood.
A spokeswoman for Hertfordshire Constabulary said: "At 3.03am, a security alarm was activated at iMobile in Potter Street. Officers were called at 3.27am and immediately attended but the suspects, two males, were not at the scene upon police arrival.
"Multiple mobile phones were stolen during the burglary. Enquiries are ongoing and any witnesses or anyone with information should call non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference 41/56118/21."
