Another Essex Bingo Hall has been targeted by theives in an armed raid that has similarities to the Lakeside raid on the 21st July. No one was harmed on the raid at Basildon’s Gala, but staff and customers were ordered to take hit the floor. They made off with a five figure sum. If anyone has any information, they should contact the police. Let’s hope this isn’t going to be the start of a long criminal campaign.
