Bishop's Stortford charity shop gets burgled for second time




A burglar was filmed on CCTV breaking in to a Bishop’s Stortford charity shop – through a boarded-up hole in the front door caused by a thief 10 days earlier.

The RSPCA Stort Valley branch in The Dells, off South Street, was broken into at around 2.20am last Wednesday (Jan 6).

The thief, who was of a medium build and wore a Puffa jacket, got in by breaking a board off the front door. He went to the office and unsuccessfully tried to get into the safe. He left with some clothing.
