"Mindless" thieves try to break in to Wincanton property
Thieves tried to break in to a property on the Hopkins Court area of Wincanton on Friday.
Offenders smashed two CCTV cameras and tried to force open a metal grid during the attempted break-in at around 9.20pm. Damage was also caused to a UPVC door.
The incident follows several break-ins in the town over recent weeks.
PCSO Mandy Forsey said: "This is a mindless, cowardly act of attempted burglary that has ended in causing damage to property. The victim cannot understand why anyone would do this, and they are very upset by the incident."
Anyone with information should contact Avon and Somerset Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
