Pool table stolen from Pickwicks pub in Worksop
Landlords are being urged to bolster security at their premises after a pool table was stolen from a Worksop pub.
Burglars forced entry to Pickwicks pub, in Central Avenue, overnight between Tuesday and Wednesday. They stole a brass light fitting along with the pool table.
It was one of three break-ins at pubs in Bassetlaw in the last few weeks.
Top House pub, in Park Street, Worksop, was accessed through an insecure window just after 2am on Tuesday 22 January 2013. Thieves stole two bottles of Bollinger champagne, a number of Castella cigars and two charity collection boxes.
There was also a break-in at Crown Inn pub, High Street, East Markham, between 1am and 11am on 30 January 2103. A rear window was removed but nothing was stolen.
Police are appealing to anyone with any information about the culprits to call them. They are also asking pub staff and customers to be vigilant of suspicious activity around premises, particularly during hours of closure.
If you have received an unsolicited approach to buy a pool table, champagne or cigars call police.
Lock all doors and windows of your business on closure. Where possible install alarms and CCTV and don’t leave cash on the premises, including in tills and games machines.
If you witnessed any of the incidents, or have any information, contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
