Shoplifting Spike In Saltash
7:02am 25th September 2014
Saltash suffers a big spike in shoplifting.
Police say supermarkets are being targeted the most - with rates jumping 70% since April.
Now a Plymouth anti-crime scheme is being extended across the Tamar - that names the town's most wanted offenders.
Some are thought to be making special shoplifting trips into Cornwall from the city.
Police Community Support Officer Mark Horton is involved in the scheme. He said: "There's been some thefts in Saltash recently from people coming over from Plymouth. We thought we would try to set up a Shopwatch scheme to ensure that crime stays relatively low in the retail industry in Saltash.
"It can make shopping a lot safer. It's not a huge issue but it deters people from coming over and trying to ply their trade over here. We want to stamp that out as quickly as possible."7:02am 25th September 2014
