Officers are appealing for public help following a burglary at a store in Moira.

Between the hours of 1.30am and 2.25am this morning (9 February), burglars broke into the Co-op store in Shortheath Road.

Once inside they managed to force open the kiosk shutters and steal a large quantity of cigarettes.

PC 4030 Daniel Foster, the investigating officer, said: “Investigations are in their early stages and we are carrying out a number of enquiries such as reviewing CCTV and speaking to nearby residents.

“I would like to appeal to anyone who may have been passing through the area between these times and may have any information about this incident to contact me.

“Did you see someone acting suspiciously near the store between these times? Did you see a vehicle make off at speed or saw which direction it went? Or maybe you are aware of someone acquiring a large number of cigarettes in suspicious circumstances?

“Anyone who has information, no matter how small it may seem, please call us on 101 quoting 18*63647.”

If you have information in response to this appeal please contact us on 101. You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. Your personal details won't be taken, information isn't traced or recorded and you will not be required to go to court.
