A pub is stepping up its security after thieves broke into two cars parked outside on Monday.
Windows on a Peugeot and a Smart car were smashed open around 8pm, the second raid on vehicles in the car park of The George in
Earley in less than two weeks.
Police have not said what was taken, but duty manager Courtney Williams said more lighting would be installed to deter thieves.
Police were called to the Chef & Brewer pub on Wokingham Road during the weekly quiz night. A spokesman for Spirit Pub Company
said: “Unfortunately two cars were targeted by criminals while parked at The George.
“The police were called immediately and all guests were asked to check their cars for any damage or signs of missing goods.
“We are co-operating with the police and their investigations, and will provide additional CCTV supervision over the coming months to prevent this activity happening again.”
