Police hunt two men after Camelon Bowling Club burglary

by Rebecca Garrett

Police are looking for two men after Camelon Bowling Club was broken into and robbed of a three figure sum of cash.

Most of the money stolen was in coins during the break-in, which occurred sometime between 1.30am and 8.30am on Saturday, July 20.

A spokesperson for Falkirk Police said: "From our initial enquiry we are keen to trace two males who were seen acting suspiciously in the area prior to the crime.

"They were possibly within a dark-coloured Ford which was parked nearby. 

"If you were in the area and saw anything please let us know."

Before the club was broken into, staff had reported that they had problems setting the alarm and police think that it might have been interfered with.  

The police spokesperson added: "We believe that this maybe because someone has attended earlier in the day and tampered with the alarm to prevent it being enabled.

"This method was used previously throughout the Falkirk area and in particular against outlying licensed premises and registered clubs.

"We would ask owners of such premises to be mindful of their overnight security and report any suspicious activity to us. 

"Where your alarm does not set at night ensure you have the fault rectified prior to closing the premises.

"When you do lock up please make sure all the buildings doors and windows and securely locked and closed."

No one from Camelon Bowling Club was available for comment.
