The offenders entered the store during a busy period and ripped the items straight off the walls before making off.
I am very keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed this theft take place, or may have information about those involved.
I would also like to trace the stolen property and speak to anyone who has been offered mobiles or iPads in strange circumstances.
