Police are appealing for witnesses after a break-in at a service station in Horncastle.

A vehicle was also taken.

It is believed that there were three male offenders and they forced entry into a portakabin at The Laurels Service Station on Spilsby Road at approximately 11.30pm on Thursday March 20.

They filled black bin bags with sweets, drinks and an amount of cash before also removing the keys to a white Ford Fiesta, registration EU11 LUL, parked on the forecourt, and stealing the vehicle.

There may have been a sighting of the car being driven at speed along the A1031 at North Coates later that night and police are appealing for anyone who thinks they may have seen the car to contact them.

Anyone with information should contact Lincolnshire Police by dialling 101 and quoting incident number 463 of March 20.

Alternatively call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
