Burnham-On-Sea Superdrug raided in early-morning burglary

Burglars smashed their way into Burnham-On-Sea's Superdrug store early this morning (Friday) and stole a large quantity of stock.

A large window at the front of the shop in Burnham High Street was smashed, as pictured here, to gain entry, before high-value items were stolen.

Police spokesman Peter Truman told "We were called at about 2.30am this morning to reports of a burglary at Superdrug in the High Street."

"Thieves have forced entry into the store and stolen a quantity of perfume before making off."

"Anyone with information about the incident should call 101 and quote reference 5217291225."

Forensics investigators were present at the shop during the morning, gathering evidence.

A store spokeswoman told "We received a call from the Police early this morning to tell us what had happened."

"It is so disappointing - a lot of high-value products, mainly perfumes, has been stolen."

It's not first time the store has been targeted by raiders. In October 2016, Burnham-On-Sea's Superdrug store was raided.

In October 2008 ram raiders attacked Burnham-On-Sea's Superdrug store, stealing stock inside.

Then in December 2008 both Burnham-On-Sea's Boots and Superdrug were raided and two men were later arrested and jailed.
