Stolen Mini used in Kidderminster pub burglary
9:18am Wednesday 17th October 2012 in News
A STOLEN Mini was used in a pub burglary in Kidderminster.
The Mini Clubman was taken from a home in Hopton Wafers, near Cleobury Mortimer after thieves entered the house, took the car keys and stole the car, which was last seen by the owners at 10.30pm on Sunday.
At about 3.15am the next morning the owner of the Coopers Arms pub in Canterbury Road, Kidderminster, heard a noise downstairs.
He looked out of a window and saw three men dressed in black leaving in a silver Mini. Going downstairs he discovered they had broken in and stolen a safe containing the previous evening's takings.
The Mini has silver roof bars on a black-coloured roof and horizontal stripes near the bottom of the doors. It also has dark/black alloys and a black and silver design on the bonnet.
Kidderminster officer, PC Niki Deakin, said: "We would like to hear from anyone who saw any suspicious activity around Hopton Wafers or has seen this distinctive Mini since 10.30pm on Sunday.
"The thieves may have put false registration plates on it but the design is quite unique and could not be mistaken if it is spotted."
Witnesses or anyone with information should contact PC Deakin on the non-emergency number 101, quoting incident 28-S-151012, or ring the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
