Appeal after Ada Cole Visitor Centre in Nazeing broken into

Crime / Thu 23rd May 2024 at 07:53am

REDWINGS Horse Sanctuary is appealing for anyone with information about a burglary at the charity’s Ada Cole Visitor Centre in Nazeing on Tuesday night (21st May) to contact the police. 

The break-in happened late in the evening at the centre on Epping Road, Broadley Common.

Redwings Ada Cole Centre Manager Jo Franklin said: “Three people are caught on CCTV breaking into the feed shed just after 10.50pm.

“They are seen leaving the site before coming back to the centre at 11.30pm.

“The till drawers were removed and were found on the counter and the staff lockers were all open. We do not keep any money on site overnight, but are assessing whether anything else was taken.

“The burglars, who were wearing hoodies, have caused some damage which we will need to repair and obviously comes at a cost to the charity.

“It’s extremely upsetting that anyone would do something like this, particularly given that all of the work we do here at Ada Cole is paid for by generous donations from animal-lovers to help horses, ponies, donkeys and mules in need.”

Anyone with any information is urged to contact Essex Police either online at https://www.essex.police.uk/ or on the phone by calling 101 and quoting reference number 276/22/05. Reports can be made to Crimestoppers anonymously at https://www.crimestoppers-uk.org or on the phone by calling 0800 555 111.

Targeting a rescue charity is the lowest of the low.

Coincidence? Charity shipping containers on Church Langley Field broken into same night. They used heavy duty angle grinder / cutting tools to cut their way in.
