Officers are warning dental practitioners and laboratories to be vigilant, following a burglary at a dental laboratory in Ripley.

The burglary is reported to have happened at the Codnor Gate property between 5.30pm on February 7 and 7.20am on February 8.

Five furnaces used in the manufacture of dentures were taken, in what officers believe to be a targeted incident.

Officers are now urging similar premises across the county to ensure that their security systems are up-to-date.

PC Sean Davis said “There are steps business owners can take to help protect their property from being targeted in this way. These include the installation of security lights, CCTV and visible alarm systems.”
