Chinese takeaway and car vandalised in Birchwood

Lincolnshire Police are investigating after offenders caused damage to a car and a Chinese takeaway on Birchwood Avenue in Lincoln.

Between 6.30am and 7am on Sunday, November 23, unknown offenders approached the front of The Orient Chinese takeaway and, using a large yellow metal gas canister, smashed the front door. Entry to the premises was not gained.

The offenders then entered the communal parking area to the rear of the flats and used the same gas bottle to smash a window of a Grey Peugoet 207 that was securely parked.

An iPod that had been left in the vehicle was stolen before the offenders fled the scene in an unknown direction.

Anyone who saw or heard anything in relation to the incidents should contact Lincolnshire Police on the non-emergency number 101, quoting incident 118 or 124 of November 23.
