UPDATE: Four men held on suspicion of newsagent burglary

Front window smashed at town centre newsagent’s

FOUR men have been arrested on suspicion of burglary at a Henley newsagent’s shop.  

A front window of Station News in Station Road was smashed at about 1.30am today (Thursday).

Thames Valley Police set up a cordon around the front of the premises, where shards of glass littered the pavement.

Owner Yogarajah Rajmohan, from Emmer Green, was informed and the shop still remains closed.

A police spokesman said four men from Slough, aged 29, 39, 41 and 43, were being held in custody.  

Neighbour Steve Ludlow said his husband had been woken up by the sound of the front window being smashed.

He told the Henley Standard: “My husband said he had heard a massive bang and seeing that the roller barriers had been down in front of the shop, it must have been some force to do this damage.”

This is the fourth such incident at the shop in the last 18 months and the second in within three weeks of each other.

On September 3, burglars stole about £7,000 worth of goods and cash after they hurled a large chunk of masonry through a glass panel in the front door.

Two masked men struck at about 3.20am, triggering the alarm in the process, then used a crowbar to break into a locked cabinet behind the counter.

The pair, who was carrying a large blue and white spotted bag, made off with cigarettes, several bottles of whisky and some money from the till.

Witnesses or anyone with information is asked to call the Thames Valley Police non-emergency number, 101.
