Break-in at supermarket


Thieves broke into Jempson’s store at Peasmarsh on Sunday afternoon January 4, when the shop was closed, writes Kenneth Bird. A sledgehammer was used to smash a window in the restaurant and 1,000 cigarettes were stolen. Stephen Jempson, a director, confirmed that ‘two young gentlemen” were later interviewed by police following a review of CCTV camera recordings.
