POLICE believe that two burglaries which took place in the North Cotswolds are linked.

In one incident, more than 60 cans of lager were stolen from a cricket club in Ebrington between 10.30am on Thursday, February 13 and 1.15pm on Saturday, February 15.

In the second burglary, two brand new Toshiba laptops and two cameras were taken from a school in Ebrington. This happened between 4pm on Friday, February 14 and 9am on Monday, February 17.

The laptops have been only recently purchased, following a £10,000 fund-raiser by the school.

If anyone has had cameras or laptops offered to them, Stow Police would like to hear from them.

Anyone with information should call 101, quoting incident no 397 of 15/2/14 for the cricket club and 100 of 20/2/14 for the school break-in.
