The break-in happened at an agricultural warehouse in Charwelton Road, Preston Capes sometime between 7pm on Sunday March 13, and 7am today Monday March 14.

The offenders broke into the property through the roof, causing considerable damage. After searching the offices, they stole keys to a lorry, which was not itself taken, and fuel from the diesel store.
