Store Raided In Stroud

Police in Stroud are appealing for witnesses after unknown offenders burgled a supermarket in the town during the early hours of Friday January 5.

Between 1.45am and 2.05am offenders gained entry to the Mid-counties Co-op supermarket in Cashes Green Road by ramming a security shutter with a red Vauxhall Astra.

Once inside the store they stole cigarettes valued at around £1,000 before making their escape in a second vehicle.

The Vauxhall Astra was recovered at the scene by officers.

Anyone with information about the burglary is asked to contact Stroud police on 0845 090 1234, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, quoting incident number 25 of January 5.
