A mobility store in Newark was one of three shops targeted by criminals in a string of burglaries carried out last Saturday morning, according to reports.
The Newark Advertiser reported that Care Matters Mobility had money stolen and retail stock damaged in the incident, which took place between 4:25am and 4:35am.
And the burglary is the subject of a police investigation, with two men believed to have been behind the damage.
Police suspect that two intruders, one on foot and one on a pushbike, carried out the attack and have appealed for witnesses and further information.
The store’s manager Claire Nicol told the paper that extensive damage had been done to the shop.
She said: “It’s such a hassle to have to deal with as they got in by wedging the door open with a crow bar and now I can’t find anyone in Newark free to come and fix it, which has been difficult because I still have to open the shop.
“I’ve been cleaning up around the customers since Saturday.”
