Ram raiders target computer shop in Rochdale

Police are searching for ram raiders who broke into a computer shop in Rochdale.

The gang used a stolen car to reverse into the shutters at the CEX store on the town's Yorkshire Street. One then dived into the shop and stole a number of computer consoles and electrical goods.

The raid happened at 12.45am on 12 February 2014.

Detectives describe the raiders as white. One, who held back the shutters while the raid happened, was wearing a two tone zip-up hooded adidas jacket, dark trousers, and dark footwear. He also had short hair.

The car involved was a stolen Vauxhall Vectra estate, KN55 EWY. It had been stolen, at knifepoint, from a supermarket car park. The owner of the car was threatened by a stocky, white man who was 5ft 5in, wearing a black balaclava and black clothing.

CCTV cameras later captured the vehicle being abandoned on Rochdale's Surma Close.
