Thief had sufficient local knowledge to access the rear of the shop, in New Street.

A CHILDREN’S charity fell victim to a burglar in Honiton last night (Sunday).

A small amount of cash was stolen from Brainwave, in New Street, after the thief forced entry to the building.

Volunteers at the shop say the burglar must have had local knowledge, because the premises was targeted from the rear - an area that is hard to find.

A charity tin on the shop’s counter was also emptied and damage was caused to two doors and a cupboard.

Scenes of crime investigators are on their way to the premises.

Anybody with information is urged to call police on 08452 777444.
