CCTV system stolen in Merseyside pet shop raid

Thieves stole the CCTV system from a Wirral pet food store less than a day after it was installed.

The Dog’s Diner in Moreton, which specialises in raw pet food, was burgled between the hours of 6.30pm on Thursday and 8am Friday.

As well as stealing several kilos of frozen raw meat the shameless thieves, who gained entry by removing a window frame, also targeted the newly installed CCTV system worth over £500.

Over £600 in cash was stolen from the shop, as well as an undisclosed amount from three charity boxes - one of which was being used to raise funds for Blind Veterans UK.

The thieves also took several bottles of dog shampoo.

Ann Ridyard, who runs the shop alongside her husband, son and daughter, says she has been left ‘devastated’ by the event.

She said: “We only got the CCTV installed on Wednesday, I just can’t believe they’d be so cheeky and just steal it, especially when it’s there to protect our shop.

“We’re a small family business trying to make our way. I just feel sick that this has happened to us after we’ve worked so hard to build this shop up to what it is with so many loyal customers.”

Ann’s daughter Sophie discovered the shop had been broken into this morning when she arrived at work to open up.
