Fast food van Samy's Snacks burgled three times in a week
A FAST food outlet has been hit by three burglaries in a week.
Owner Brandon Davies, 39, refuses to be beaten by the criminals and has vowed to continue trading.
Samy's Snacks in Wiltshire Road, west Hull, has had a stereo, tools and food either taken or covered in detergents – damage which has cost him more than £1,300.
It is one of several businesses to have suffered along the road in the past week.

Mr Davies said: "I've been here three years and not once been burgled up until now.
"Each time I have improved the security and now have used Smartwater and UV pens.
"I also don't leave my stock in the van anymore.
"I refuse to be beaten."
The first break in happened on October 3, when the offenders got in through the front hatch and took some of the stock and electrical goods.
They also squirted detergents in the food freezer.
Mr Davies is not the only victim along the road.
Several other businesses, including EYG, have been broken into during the past week.
Chris George, joint managing director of the double- glazing firm, said an articulated lorry was broken into with a sat-nav, phone and cash taken last Thursday and two other vehicles were broken into on Wednesday evening.
He said: "I find it a coincidence we haven't had a break-in for several years, yet in Hull Fair week we have two. Someone might be targeting us, knowing that the blame could be put on Hull Fair.
"I will be interested to see if we suffer over the next few weeks."
Police have arrested two juveniles in relation to one of the break-ins of Samy's Snacks and have managed to recover some of the property.
