Dorchester Hotel Hit By Smash-And-Grab Raiders Again

Thursday 10th July 2014

Smash-and-grab robbers have raided the Dorchester Hotel for the second time in a month.


Six men riding three mopeds sped up to the hotel at 2.20am and smashed their way through the front door.

Once inside, they smashed display cabinets and stole a number of items.

Detective Sergeant Mark Staples said: "We continue to work towards identifying those responsible for carrying out not only the robbery which took place in the early hours of this morning but the robbery which took place last month.

"We have yet to make arrests in relation to either incident and we urgently require the support of the public with providing us with any information no matter how small. There may be people who know who is responsible and I am keen for those with any information to come forward and assist us with our investigation."

Anyone with any information is asked to call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. 

Last month, the moment robbers with sledge hammers forced their way into the Dorchester was caught on CCTV.
