Ram Raiders Target Laptops at Scunthorpe Computer Firm

Ram-raiders snatched a haul of laptop computers from a store on Scunthorpe High Street.

A vehicle was repeatedly driven into the front of Cram Computers Ltd by electronics thieves who grabbed a number of the computers.

It is thought the break-in, which took place in the middle of the High Street, overnight between September 4 and 5, could have been caught on CCTV and been witnessed by members of the public.

Manager Amos Fenton said: "We are still open for business, despite what's happened: Basically, they've rammed the shop three times before they've got in, then they've just taken laptops."

A spokesman for Humberside Police said: "The incident happened in a potentially busy part of town so there may have been a number of witnesses to the theft."

Anyone with information is urged to contact police on 0845 60 60 222 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
