Mason Moore | Hinckley Reporter | 14 July 2021

THE CO-OPERATIVE Food store on Rainbow Way in Burbage was targeted by thieves last night who managed to take off with stolen cash.

Last night (13 July), two men made their way into the store, threatened staff members who were working the shop floor, and took money from an open till.

Hinckley Police officers were then called to the store shortly after 7.30pm, following a report that a robbery had taken place on the premises.

Luckily, no staff members suffered any serious injuries during the incident.

No arrests have yet been made at this time and enquiries into the incident are ongoing.

Police and Forensics vehicles returned to the shop again today (14 July), as it is still being investigated by the local police force.

Anyone with information should contact the police on the non-emergency number of 101, quoting incident 489 of 13 July.
