Spate of gaming machine break-ins

POLICE are appealing for vigilance following a spate of gaming machine thefts in Boston.

Offenders stole cash from a machine in the Witham Tavern, in Witham Bank East, after forcing open a uPVC patio door.

The raid took place some time between 11.30pm last Sunday and Tuesday morning.

It followed robberies in two High Street kebab shops, discovered last Friday and last Monday.

Police are appealing for witnesses, but also for extra vigilance around gaming machines and to note anyone paying for goods with an unusually large amount of coins.
