A BURNHAM-on-Sea Boots store has been burgled for the third time in two weeks in a daring Easter attack.

The popular beauty store on High Street had its windows smashed by burglars in the early hours of Easter Sunday (April 16) and a number of goods were stolen.

This is the third time the store has been attacked in the space of two weeks.

A spokesman for Avon and Somerset Police, said: "We were called to reports of a burglary at a pharmacists in High Street at about 5.30am on April 16.

"A number of items have been taken by single intruder, who is reported to have forced entry to the store at about 4.40am.

"Crime scene investigators attended and took forensic samples and reviewed the CCTV footage.

"We're keen to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time of the incident who may have information to help our enquiries.

"If you are able to help please call us, quoting reference 5217083985."

The Boots beauty and chemist store has been a target for burglars over the last two weeks after police attended two burglaries of an identical nature at the store on April 3 and April 13.

The windows on the front door entrance to the store were smashed by intruders in each attack and a high quantity of perfume and other goods were stolen.

The recent raid comes after two Burnham businesses, Burnham Central Service Station and The Children's Society charity shop on High Street were victims of burglaries at the end of March.

A spokesman for Boots, said: "We can confirm that our Boots store on the High street in Burnham on Sea has suffered 3 burglaries in the last month.

"The security of our stores is very important to us.

"We are currently supporting the police with their investigations and exploring options for installing additional perimeter protection at the store.”

Police have launched an investigation into the attacks but are not yet sure if they are linked.

CCTV footage is being reviewed by police who are appealing for any witnesses to the attacks to come forward.

If you have any information about the burglaries call the police non emergency number 101.
