APPEAL: Petrol stations targeted in Stafford

We’re appealing for the public’s help after two petrol stations were burgled.

The first break-in happened at Colwich Filling Station, Wolseley Bridge, at around 1am on Monday 30 November, but nothing was stolen.

The second premises was targeted at around 2.15am on Tuesday 1 December when entry was forced to Brockton Service Station in Cannock Road and a large quantity of cigarettes, alcohol and medication was stolen.

It is suspected that the incidents are linked as both involved offenders forcing entry through the roof.

If you have any information about these crimes please contact DS Kiley Round at Staffordshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 48 of November 30. Alternatively, you can contact the independent crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or through their Anonymous Online Form at No personal details are taken, information cannot be traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
