Burglars forced entry to Pickwicks pub, in Central Avenue, overnight between Tuesday 29th and Wednesday 30th January 2013.

They stole a brass light fitting and a pool table.

It was one of three break-ins at pubs in Bassetlaw in the last few weeks.

Top House pub, in Park Street, Worksop, was accessed through an insecure window just after 2am on Tuesday 22nd January.

Thieves stole two bottles of Bollinger champagne, a number of Castella cigars and two charity collection boxes.

There was also a break-in at the Crown Inn pub, High Street, East Markham, between 1am and 11am on Wednesday 30th January. A rear window was removed but nothing was stolen.

Police are appealing to anyone with any information about the culprits to call them.

They are also asking pub staff and customers to be vigilant of suspicious activity around premises, particularly during closed hours.

If you have had an unsolicited approach to buy a pool table, champagne or cigars call the police.

Pub landlords are advised to lock all doors and windows at closing time.

Where possible install alarms and CCTV and don’t leave cash on the premises, including in tills and games machines.

If you witnessed any of these incidents, or have any information, contact Notts Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
