Blaikie sounds burglar alarm


PUBS across Scotland are continuing to fall victim to a break-in scam, which involves the culprits tampering with alarm sensors during the day, allowing them to enter freely after closing time.

The Dolphin in Whitecraig, East Lothian, was robbed of £1500 in cash after the alarm was disabled during the day.
It was the latest in a series of similar raids on pubs, golf clubs and members’ clubs around the country, which Glasgow publican Alistair Don of The Doublet Bar highlighted in SLTN last month.
Graham Blaikie, who currenty runs The Dolpin, urged staff locking up to either call their manager or an alarm engineer if they find they can’t set the alarm, as the culprits would most likely be observing.
