Organ Damaged In Cheltenham Church Hall Break-In

Police are appealing for information after a church hall was broken into.

Offenders broke into the St Barnabus Church Hall in Orchard Way, Cheltenham, sometime between 5pm on Tuesday, April 18 and 1pm the following day.

They removed a 2 foot by four foot pane of glass in the building to get inside, before causing a considerable amount of damage to a projector screen and to the church's organ.

Offenders also wrote the following on the wall: 'We are back again X 3'.

Police believe the same offenders may be responsible for other damage that has been caused to the property recently, and would appeal to anyone who may have been in the area at the time and witnessed any suspicious activity to contact them, as well as anyone who may have any information on the offenders.

You can contact Gloucestershire Police on 0845 090 1234 or can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, quoting incident number 257 of April 19.
