Two safes and hundreds of pounds worth of groceries were stolen from a food store in Cleckheaton.

The burglary, at a business in Central Arcade, happened sometime between 10pm on Sunday, October 18, and 7am on Monday, October 19.

Two large safes were stolen as well as a significant quantity of grocery items and other goods including nearly 50 bottles of alcohol.

Detective Sergeant Mark Taylor, of Kirklees District CID, said: “Given the sheer volume of items stolen as well as the size and weight of the safes taken, we believe that more than one person was involved and that they have used a vehicle. “We are keen to hear from anyone who has seen any individuals behaving suspiciously in the Central Arcade area overnight between Sunday night and Monday morning or who has seen items being loaded in to a vehicle.”

Anyone with information is asked to either call Kirklees District CID directly via 101 or to pass details anonymously to independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
