A local football club in Grantham was targeted by thieves who they said stole the till and the charity tubs from the bar.

The thieves destroyed two doors to gain entry to Harrowby United Football Club, which is located on Dickens Road in Grantham, during the morning of Monday, January 6.

The club said the thieves ripped the jukebox off the wall, along with the lotto machine, before stealing the till and smashing various stock, and “as a final parting gift stole all the charity tubs off the bar.”

In a CCTV video posted by the club a man can clearly be seen picking up and unplugging the till before walking off with it.

The jukebox and lottery machine were taken and later found damaged in a nearby field.
