Bowling hut broken into Uttoxeter

We received a call at 9.40am this morning reporting that between 2315hrs on 6 September and 0745hrs 7 September, offenders have approached a lawn green bowling hut, enclosed at the rear of The Old British Legion Club, Bradley Street,  Uttoxeter.

Entry was gained via the only door, which was locked with a Yale lock, using bodily pressure. A tidy search was made of the hut and a tin of biscuits and a lawn bowling ball were stolen. It is not believed at this time that anything else was stolen.
