A £22,500 shotgun has been stolen from an Exeter store and was never returned, it has been revealed today.
The vintage weapon was stolen in March this year according to new information about shoplifting in the region from Devon and Cornwall Police.
The spreadsheet documenting every incident of shoplifting in Devon and Cornwall for the last three years was released by the force under the Freedom of Information Act.
Devon and Cornwall Police said a Hussey and Hussey, double-barreled gun, was removed from the Exeter store “by unknown means” between March 4-10.
Nine South Yorkshire police officers have been disciplined following allegations of sexual misconduct made by colleagues.
Allegations were made between 2010 and March this year, according to details released under the Freedom of Information Act.
Cheshire is one of the most dangerous places to live according to 999 calls – that is if you are scared of tigers, pumas, panthers and lynxes.
A tiger has been spotted prowling along the banks of the River Dee, a lynx with paw prints as big as a “human hand” killing sheep, cats and chickens, and a large wild cat terrified a caller who was sure it was at large in Tarporley town centre.
Details of the 999 calls, revealed to The Chronicle through a Freedom of Information (FOI) request, show that Cheshire has one of the highest rates of big cat sightings in the country – with nine sightings reported to Cheshire Constabulary between 2011-April 2014.
