Over the last week or so there has been a series of commercial burglaries in the parishes of Padstow and St Merryn.
Local Neighbourhood Beat Manager for the area PC Alex Allen stated, "Local police are investigating a series of non dwelling burglaries, involving the same two suspects. Overnight on Sunday 24th July a commercial business at Trecerus Industrial Estate, Padstow was broken into and on the same night the bar and shop buildings at St Merryn park were also targeted. On Tuesday 2nd August at around 1030 pm sadly there was another break in at a business at Constantine Beach Car park, Constantine Bay, with money and drinks being stolen. It appears to be the same two male suspects pictured in the CCTV still image. Both males are wearing blue baseball style caps, face coverings, gloves and dark clothing. I have also be made aware of other businesses that have 'under reported' similar incidents in the local area. I understand that many businesses are extremely busy with the summer demand but please ensure such crimes are reported to Police. Most people have access to the internet and in a non emergency situation the 'live web chat option' on the Devon and Cornwall Police website is highly recommended and often quicker than the '101' number. Please can I urge business owners in the Padstow and St Merryn areas to be vigilant, install CCTV, do not leave cash on site or anything of value that can be moved easily if possible. Anyone with information regarding this series of burglaries please contact Devon and Cornwall Police via our website 'Live Web Chat' option quoting crime number CR/066530/22".
