Is it a coincidence that since Rayleigh Police Station has decided to close it's doors through the night that Rayleigh has seen an increase in nighttime burglaries?

Perhaps ASK could ask for a refund on their business rates from Rochford Council for the reduction in the Police service in Rayleigh! Remember we are all paying for services that have been reduced, yet our rates haven't reduced!

Nothing wrong with business burglary. Home burglaries are personal, but this is just a burglary on a business. Easy money ain't it.

Why wasn't the money in a safe? Also what big or chain business doesn't have cctv in every nook and cranny these days? Strange.

Perhaps the money was in a safe- from the report we cannot tell.
