Shaftesbury Business Offers Cash For Identifying Intruder On CCTV

A Shaftesbury tyre retailer has taken the unusual step of offering a ‘cash prize’ to anyone who can identify an intruder caught on CCTV on Monday night.

The break-in occurred at DCM Tyre and Auto Centre on the Longmead estate at around 10.30pm. Another break-in took place at Shaftesbury Football Club on Sunday night.

North Dorset police say they are making ‘enhanced patrols’ of the industrial estates for ‘reassurance purposes’.

Earlier this month, a 20-year-old local man was arrested in connection with a previous spate of fifteen burglaries in September. More on our report.
