Appeal following burglary at Chester restaurant Date published: 25th September 2019 2.08pm

Officers are appealing for information and footage from members of the public following a burglary at a buffet restaurant in Chester.

Shortly before midnight on Monday 23 September a man broke into the Panda Mami restaurant in Newgate Street and stole bottles of spirits.

He returned with a woman and bags around 15 minutes later.

The pair then stole more bottles of spirits before fleeing on foot.

The man had a short beard and a pointed nose and was wearing an all white/light grey Nike Air Max tracksuit with the hood up, black gloves and Adidas trainers.

The woman was wearing a similar-style tracksuit in the same colour.

She was also wearing black gloves, the same colour as the trainers she had on.

Enquiries in relation to the incident are ongoing and officers are urging anyone with information or CCTV or dashcam footage that may help their investigation to come forward.

Police Constable Ashley Davies said: “Burglary is a serious crime and we are determined to identify the offenders and make them face the consequences of their actions.

“As part of our investigation we want speak to anyone who was in the area and witnessed anything suspicious.

“The same goes for anyone who believes they may know who the offenders are or have CCTV or dashcam footage of them, either before they stole the bottles of spirits from the restaurant or as they were fleeing the scene.

“We also want to speak to anyone who has been offered the chance to buy bottles of spirits since the restaurant was burgled.”
