Theft at charitable organisation

The theft at Cambridge Community House did not leave evidence of forced entry.

Cambridge Community House received a low blow recently when the charitable organisation had several items stolen.

A laptop, computer monitor and docking station were stolen from the Shakespeare St premises on the night of July 24 – 25. A police forensics team could not find evidence of a break in.

After posting about the incident on social media, the organisation has received several offers of support from the community.

“Thank you all so much for your kind words of support,” said Joanne Turner, manager of Cambridge Community House. “We are fortunate to have not lost too much in this break-in. We are able to continue with our work as usual. Great team we have here!”

Anyone who may have information about the incident should phone the Cambridge Police on 07 827 5531 or phone Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
