Cigarettes Stolen In Shop Break-In

Posted: 06/09/2008 11:45:29

North Cotswolds Police are appealing for information after a supermarket in Upper Rissington was broken into in the early hours of 5th September.

The incident took place between 2.05am and 2.20am at the shop on Sopwith Road.

It is believed three unknown offenders, all wearing hooded jackets, scarves and gloves, forced entry to the store by smashing the glass door entrance.

Once inside, two of the offenders forced open a metal shutter and stole cigarettes while the third offender stood by the door. The offenders then exited through the front door again.

A witness has reported seeing a silver/grey Honda 4x4 driving off from outside the property shortly afterwards.

Acting Police Sergeant Tim Griffiths, of North Cotswolds Police, said: “We need information from anyone who witnessed the incident or who has seen anything suspicious in the area in the last few days

“We would also like to hear from anybody who has seen a silver 4x4 vehicle with three to four occupants in the vicinity or who has been offered a large quantity of cigarettes.

“Security-wise, shops should be reminded that, wherever possible, it is far safer to remove cigarettes from their shelves entirely overnight.”

Anyone with information can call 0845 090 1234, or alternatively Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, quoting incident 30 of September 5th.
