THE owner of an Ardrossan business says she has been left "utterly devastated" by a break-in over the weekend.

However, the owner of JLO Snacks on South Beach Road has vowed not to let those responsible get the better of her.

Sarah Toner got a heartbreaking knock on the door early on Saturday, April 6, to tell her of the break-in at her business.

The 33-year-old is currently operating a snack van from the former South Beach Stores in Ardrossan - but has plans to move into the building in the near future.

Sarah was left gutted by the incident which comes only a couple of months after she launched.

She commented: "Sadly we got a chap at the door this morning to say our van has been broken into.

"If anyone has seen anything or heard anything, please contact us. We are utterly devastated."

But the break-in did not stop Sarah opening for business as usual on Monday morning.

Police Scotland say enquiries into the incident remain ongoing.

A force spokesperson said: “Around 5.30am on Saturday, April 6, 2024, officers received a report of a break-in to a van on South Beach Road, Ardrossan.

“Enquiries are ongoing.”
