A police cordon was set up after burglars raided a Co-op overnight in Derbyshire. The incident happened at the Co-op petrol station on Chesterfield Road in Duckmanton, a village near Chesterfield, overnight between Tuesday (May 10) and Wednesday (May 11).
Two police vehicles were at the scene today (May 11) along with several police officers. This included a forensics team who were seen examining the damage done to the front of the store.
Located close to the M1, this isn’t the first time the petrol station has been the target of criminal activity. In 2015 a JCB was used to lift a cashpoint from the wall of the store and then into the back of a getaway vehicle with the roof cut off.
