Police are appealing for witnesses following a ram raid incident in the early hours of this morning in Red Lodge (Saturday 19 August).

It took place at some point between 2am and 2.05am at the Nisa convenience store on Bellflower Crescent.

A silver Mercedes ML 4x4 was used to ram the rear shutters of the store. It is thought there were either two or three offenders with sledge hammers and balaclavas.

They forced entry to the cigarette counter and filled a dustbin with the contents before leaving the scene in the vehicle.

Police are carrying out inquiries into the incident and officers would like to hear from anyone who saw any suspicious activity or has seen a damaged silver Mercedes 4x4.
