Police say the net is closing in on those wanted for a string of break-ins at Corby’s pubs and clubs.
Almost 50 licensed premises have been raided since August in smash and grab incidents with fruit machines one of the main targets.
Detectives say they’ve made a breakthrough with DNA matches
Detective Chief Superintendent Caroline Marsh, said: “We are very aware of the anger and frustration among the business community in Corby at the moment and I would like to reassure them that the Chief Constable and I are personally overseeing this investigation in order to ensure the offenders are brought to justice.
Business owners, landlords and landladies work extremely hard and to have their livelihoods threatened by criminals who think stealing is an acceptable way to make money is understandably, sickening.”
They are also keen to speak to Stephen Hill (pictured above) as we think he might be able to help us with the investigation. Stephen, or anyone who knows of his whereabouts, should contact us immediately
