It's believed the group distracted the shopkeeper at L S Bains in Lord Street, while others were able to break into the living quarters and steal cash.
Police officers have been trawling the CCTV and have now released images of four men they would like to speak to.
Fortunately no-one was hurt during the burglary but these men need to be caught. They may still be in the Walsall area and we would urge anyone with any knowledge to call me or one of the team.
