A BURGLAR targeted three stores after breaking into the Sovereign Centre at the weekend.

Three areas of the Boscombe shopping centre were cordoned off by police on Saturday morning following the overnight incident.

Glass doors at the entrance of the centre, next to The Garden Café, were cracked and the glass door of The Garden Café had been shattered.

The cafe’s owner, Debra Clark, said she was called by the centre’s security team at around 6am, who informed her of the break-in.

She found £100 had been taken and what appeared to be blood behind the counter on the floor.

“There is blood here and there is more leading up to the gate outside, which it looks like someone has tried to climb over,” she added.

“This has meant us losing a whole morning of business.”

The shop was closed until midday so staff could clear up the shattered glass.

BB’s Coffee and Muffins and Entertainment Exchange were the other stores targeted.

Entertainment Exchange store supervisor Suzi Kagi said: “I didn’t realise anything had happened until I got in at 8.30am. Nothing has been taken.”

Police and forensic officers remained at the scene until the afternoon and taped off an area near The Garden Café, Entertainment Exchange and a small area near another cracked window at the car park entrance.

Sovereign Centre manager Peter Ruscoe confirmed that an intruder had gained access to the premises early on Saturday morning.

He added that a man had been detained.

“I have worked at a number of other shopping centres and from time to time there are people that try to break into premises.

“We have 24-hour CCTV. We are pretty confident that our security worked well.”

A Dorset Police spokesperson said it was a commercial burglary at the Sovereign Centre and that officers were continuing their investigations.

This isn't a Boscombe issue, it's a Sovereign Centre issue. After the jewellery break in last year and the recent stabbing, the security should be ahead of the game, but they've clearly failed here. I'd feel very insecure right now if I was a shop owner in the centre. Hopefully this relatively minor incident will be a valuable lesson to the management.

Boscombe unfortunately will never get better, I lived there for 10 years and have seen it progressively get worse and worse. I moved out of Boscombe a month ago and it was the best decision I have ever made. All this talk of "regeneration" is absolute rubbish, the only way Boscombe will change for the better is to get rid of all of the dry houses, drug/alcohol rehabilitation centres, DSS affordable living, which I can never see happening. People should just face facts that it will always be a poor area with a high crime rate and undesirable people.

Certainly this negative attitude will never help Boscombe, good job not everyone feels the same so you may be proved wrong - of course though it's not going to happen instantly, it requires energy and time. Besides which, what's this got to do with the break-in? In your new paradise, do you not get any crime at all? Lucky you!

Point taken, but like I say we can be negative and let it all happen, or we can be positve and use energy to try and improve our locality. My other point is, the stigma attached to Boscombe is ridiculously negatively biased when there are similar crimes including killings, and personal and shop crime in many other places in the local area including Charminster and the town centre - why are these accepted as one-offs and the Boscombe examples comdemned differently each time?

Probably because the authorities are always harping on about what wonderful things they are doing and how it will solver everything. When it fact, they appear to just be peeing money up the wall on random crap that makes no difference. There's only one way you will fix Boscombe. Stop filling it with the dregs of society and pretending that they can be changed, or even want to. A bit of new tarmac and some fresh grass is not going to stop anything. And nor will that stupid Turdis!

Hear hear Manjon.
I've seen the "demolish Boscombe", "nuke Boscombe" tirades on here so many times it's laughable - thousands homeless, even the 3rd world would laugh at the suggestion. What's funnier is the "scum", who under such a proposition would have to move somewhere else, would hopefully end up in the "nicer" places where negative posters like Skydiver come from, thus giving the problem to them ;-)
My point being that people, whatever you think of them, have to live somewhere. The focus therefore should be about convincing people that their life is worth more than what they are currently doing with it. Or if you don't agree with that at least suggest something rather than just constantly criticise the place without even considering realistic ways to improve. The Tardis has been knocked, but at least it's trying!

Hopefully this relatively minor incident will be a valuable lesson to the management.[/p][/quote]Boscombe yet again in the news no amount of cash being poured into this place will solve these problems I say again totally demolish it, Along with those who create these problems . It's a bad area full stop.[/p][/quote]What a ridiculous statement to make, would you move the people out before demolition, if so where to, you must live in a wonderful area without crime, maybe you would like a couple of drug rehab houses at the end of your street, oops I bet you dont have streets, only avenues.[/p][/quote]Hear hear Manjon. I've seen the "demolish Boscombe", "nuke Boscombe" tirades on here so many times it's laughable - thousands homeless, even the 3rd world would laugh at the suggestion. What's funnier is the "scum", who under such a proposition would have to move somewhere else, would hopefully end up in the "nicer" places where negative posters like Skydiver come from, thus giving the problem to them ;-) My point being that people, whatever you think of them, have to live somewhere. The focus therefore should be about convincing people that their life is worth more than what they are currently doing with it. Or if you don't agree with that at least suggest something rather than just constantly criticise the place without even considering realistic ways to improve. The Tardis has been knocked, but at least it's trying! jezmmm
