THESE men stole thousands of pounds worth of cigarettes in a raid.

The three raiders smashed their way into the Co-op at the Locks Heath Centre in Locks Heath, via a glass panel in a door.

They broke shutters on the cigarette kiosk and bundled the stock into a bag at about 2.15am on March 2 before fleeing in a silver vehicle.

Detective Constable Katie Wakefield said: ‘I am appealing to any local residents who saw or heard a vehicle speeding from the area. I am also appealing for anyone who may have seen anyone in the area, matching the descriptions of the offenders.

‘It is believed that the offenders were seen acting suspiciously around the Park Gate Co-op at about 4am on February 28. They were spooked by the manager who was in the building doing some work. Anyone who may have any information relating to this incident should get in touch with us.’

The first man is white, wore a grey hooded top, a dark bomber jacket and dark trousers.

The second wore a black hooded top or jacket with red toggles, a red bandana and dark trousers with white stripes on.

The other man wore a jacket, dark trousers and a white bandana. Call police on 101.
