Police want to speak to these men following series of commercial burglaries in Taunton

Avon and Somerset Police are appealing for information following a series of commercial burglaries in Taunton.

Between 04:30 and 07:30 on Thursday 19 January, a number of businesses on Blackbrook Park Avenue and Deane Gate Avenue were broken into and laptops and other items were taken.

“Two people, we would like to speak to in connection with these incidents, were captured on CCTV and we believe they were seen at various points by members of the public. We are keen to speak anyone who saw them or a vehicle we believe they may have been driving” said Avon and Somerset Police.
