Cigarettes stolen in store break in – Slough
Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses after a car was driven into the front of a convenience store in Slough as part of a burglary.
At just after 2am on the morning of 27th July, a blue Mazda was driven into the front of the Nisa store in Wentworth Avenue, Slough. Four men got out of the car and forced their way in, stealing a quantity of cigarettes. The men fled the scene in a dark-coloured BMW along Wentworth Avenue, towards Farnham Lane. The Mazda was left in situ.
The BMW was later found in the Bromycroft Road area.
Investigating officer Det Sgt John Wordsworth, of Local CID in Slough, said: “The offenders used one car to plough into the front of the store, and a second car to flee the scene.
“I would like to speak to anyone who saw either of these two cars either before the incident or, in the case of the BMW, afterwards.
“There would have been a lot of noise when the offenders broke into the store, so I would also like to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident, who has not already spoken to us.”
If you can help, please call Det Sgt Wordsworth via the 24-hour Police Enquiry Centre on 101.
