Thieves target Worthing town centre cancer charity shop

THIEVES stole a weekend’s worth of takings from a cancer charity shop in an incident that police have described as “beyond belief”.

Taking a total of £546.50, the thieves broke into the Marie Curie Cancer Care shop, in Montague Street, Worthing, between 4pm on Sunday, February 1, and 8.55am on Monday, February 2.

The burglars entered through a skylight in the roof and then proceeded to force open the cabinet that held the money.

PC David Slade said: “This incident is beyond belief in that someone can break into a cancer charity shop and steal the weekend takings.”

Sussex Police are appealing to witnesses or anyone with information about the incident to contact them by calling 101 and quoting serial 0278 of 02/02.
