HUMBERSIDE POLICE are investigating an attempted burglary that happened at the Co-op filling station in Hull Road, Hedon between 3:10am and 3:26am on Sunday 19th February 2012.
Two suspects entered the forecourt of the closed filling station on either a low powered motorcycle or moped. Neither suspect was wearing a crash helmet. They approached the front security shutters of the premises and forced both security shutters causing extensive damage to both. They then attempted to force the secure glass electric door which caused the door to open slightly.
The alarm was activated and both suspects made off in an unknown direction on the motorcycle without having gained entry to the station.
The damage to the filling station is expected to cost more than £3,000 to repair.
Police are appealing for anyone with information or witnesses to contact the police on the non-emergency telephone number 101 referring to log number 114 of 19th February, or alternatively call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
