Thumbs up The safe has been found, Herefordshire village post office safe

BURGLARS have dismantled a village post office after making off with a safe.



Intruders used bolt cutters to get through fencing outside Pontrilas Post Office.

They arrived sometime between 9pm last night and 7am this morning when staff made the shocking discovery.

Windows were also smashed while a brick wall within the shop was also demolished and the safe pulled from the wall.

Sonya Cary, who with husband Nigel set up a community interest group named Care and Repair Enterprise (CARE) in Pontrilas in 2013, to save the post office said the burglary was devastating.

"We work hard and pay our taxes and try to do a lot here for the community to reduce social isolation so to see what some people will do to steal money is just heart-breaking," she added.

Mrs Cary said the safe was 4ft tall and incredibly sturdy and does not believe the sizeable sum will be accessible.

"It's a real old cast iron safe and is massive so I don't think they will get it open," she said.

"Plus I'm sure they will damage the money inside."

She said she could not say how much money was inside but said it was a large amount.

The Post Office is currently closed while police carry out investigations at the scene.

The post office is about 12 miles from the garage here, there was a high wind that night, a Guy I know lives one house up and heard nothing

I was told a small hole was made in the wall with a bar and the safe pulled out on a chain, the SAS camp is just across the road too

I don' think the safe or money will seen seen again, a big timber firm banks it's takings there like others, so there could well have been a lot of cash in there

safe breaking not a very good way to work especially on camera, the police probably will arrest them for being stupid.

May be, but it was well rigged, and the gold bars looked real too, maybe that was there weeks wages they used in the safe

I don't think the safe would have been that easy to get into anyway, and for sure there would be no gold bars in it

But good video all the same.
