A BAKER has spoken out about being burgled for the third time since moving into the premises in Pewsey.

Despite having CCTV fitted, Marshalls Bakery was broken into in the early hours of the morning on Monday.

Two men were disturbed after police were called about noise coming from the bakery in North Street.

A man, 37, ran from the scene but was stopped by officers in North Street and arrested on suspicion of burglary.

The suspect was in custody at Melksham police station and has since been released under investigation.

A police helicopter was used to trace another suspect who also fled the scene.

Owner Richard Marshall has had to repair damaged doors at the premises following the incident.

It is the second time this year that the shop has been targeted and the third since it opened.

Mr Marshall said: “The police were here promptly and I followed five minutes after. There was quite a lot of damage at the back door.

“I’m not sure if anything has been taken but there was nothing of any value left on the premises. Our first baker starts work from 1.30am so if it had been an hour later somebody would have been there.

“The burglaries always happen in the early hours of the morning but last time they only took a little cash, only a few pounds.

“We had CCTV fitted and have recently updated to better cameras. They have caused damage to an internal door trying to gain access to an area which didn’t have anything of value in it anyway.”

Community co-ordinator PC Teresa Herbert said: “This was good policing work by officers who were able to attend the scene swiftly and locate a suspect who currently remains in custody in Melksham.”

Police also seized a Honda Civic which was found parked behind the bakery at the time of the burglary as part of their investigations.
