Raid on Molescroft shop and Post Office
Molescroft News and Independent Post Office was the scene of a break-in during the early hours of this (Thursday) morning (August 16).
The raiders attempted to gain entry through the back door without success and when they couldn’t break in through the front door either, they eventually gained access through a front window, triggering the alarm system and waking a neighbour.
Owner Pamela Cavanagh told Beverley FM that had it not been for the prompt action of the neighbour and the police in Beverley, the damage and losses could have been a lot worse.
The shop and post office remained closed throughout Thursday morning to allow police to do investigations and for shop clean-up.
