Fireworks stolen from local Garden Centre

John Freeman
Police in Morecambe are appealing for witnesses after nearly £4,000 worth of fireworks were stolen from a garden centre.

The incident happened overnight between October 18th and 19th at Broadoak Leisure on Lancaster Road, near Torrisholme.

The offenders climbed the perimeter fence and broken into a secure shed and stolen 39 boxes of fireworks before making off.

“I would appeal for anyone who has any information to come forward and contact us," asked Detective Constable Paul Donnelly. "I am keen to hear from people who have been offered cheap fireworks perhaps in a pub or via word of mouth.

“The fireworks stolen are what would be classed as domestic, the sort we use to set off in our gardens on bonfire night. As November 5th is only a couple of weeks away, people in the Morecambe and Lancaster area may be offered them at a discounted price as the offender tries to get rid of his stolen goods.”

• Anyone with information can call Lancaster police on 01524 63333 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
