THOUSANDS of pounds’ worth of mobile telephones were stolen in a burglary at the Sure phone shop in Ramsey.
Mobile phones from several manufacturers were taken from the Parliament Street shop between 1am and 2am on Tuesday.
Sgt Andy Kneen from Ramsey police said: ‘All the circumstances point to this being a deliberately planned crime, rather than a spur of the moment offence.
‘I fully expect that phones stolen from these premises will be offered for sale in the island.
‘If you are offered a brand new phone, in dubious circumstances or at a knock-down price which is too good to be true, it is too good to be true. Please come forward and report any such offer.
‘Any bone fide seller should be able to offer you proof that they came by the phone legitimately. Several lines of enquiry are being pursued in relation to this offence. Please pass any information to the police at Ramsey.’
