Lincolnshire Police are appealing for witnesses after burglars stole what has been described as a “large quantity” of fireworks from a discount warehouse in Lincoln.
Officers investigating the incident believe that the offender(s) forced entry to containers at the JTF premises on Greetwell Road overnight from Saturday, October 17 to Sunday, October 18.
The burglars subsequently made off with a significant amount of ‘Guy Fawkes’ brand fireworks.
Police are keen to speak to anyone who witnessed anything suspicious in the area before the incident was reported at 8am on Sunday.
Officers have also asked the public to look out for fireworks sold at knock-down prices over the next few weeks, in the run up to Bonfire Night (November 5).
Anyone who is offered any cheap fireworks or who has any information is asked to contact Lincolnshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 104 of October 18.
Alternatively, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
