Thieves Break Into Norwich Dental Practice One Month After It Opened
Thieves have broken into a dental practice in Norwich just one month after it opened.
Burglars robbed the practice, which recently opened in a purpose-designed facility, between Friday 4th and Sunday 6th January. Police believe that thieves entered the St James Dental Centre in Barrack Street through a window on the side of the building. Three flat-screen televisions were disconnected from the walls and removed from the building.
Practice manager, Isobel Hughes, said that everyone is upset about the break-in as staff worked very hard to get the surgery up and running and the practice has only been open for a month. She added that the practice will need four new internal doors, new lockers and cabinets and improved security measures to prevent a break-in in the future.
Recently, there has been a number of shed robberies in the area and although police are not linking the dental practice burglary to any other incidents, a spokesman has encouraged people to invest in security to protect their possessions and livelihoods.
Police are urging anyone who has any information about the robbery on Barrack Street to contact PC Paul Collins at Bethel Street Police Station by dialling 101 or contacting the Crimestoppers line anonymously by ringing 0800 555 111.Join this Discussion
