GLOUCESTERSHIRE Police believes two after hours pub breaks-ins which took place in the Cotswolds are connected.

The first incident occurred between 11.30pm on Mon Feb 3 and 7am on Tuesday Feb 4.

Offenders gained entry to the pub in Barnsley, entered the bar area and moved the till drawer forward.

Nothing was stolen or damaged from within the pub.

In the second incident, which occurred at a pub in Arlington, Bibury between 4am and 4.15am on February 4, offenders forced entry to the pub, setting the alarm off and then left without stealing anything.
