Witnesses describe five people all wearing hooded tops arriving at the shop on three motor bikes. One smashed the window to the front door and the suspects filled bags with cigarettes. They were disturbed and left on the same vehicles dropping a bag, which was later recovered. A quantity of cigarettes were taken.
