Thieves with sledgehammers and axe target Co-op in Clare
Thieves targeted the Co-op in Clare in the early hours of this morning - the latest in a sequence of overnight burglaries in the region.
Police officers were called out to the shop on Market Hill at 12.40am, following reports of a number of suspects using sledgehammers and an axe to break into the store.
The offenders subsequently made off with numerous stolen goods, fleeing the scene in a dark-coloured Audi.
Anybody with information about this crime is urged to contact Suffolk Police by telephoning 101, quoting incident reference number 3 of March 21, 2018.
This comes just soon after three people were arrested following a similar incident at the Co-op in Canhams Road, Great Cornard early on Monday morning, where a quantity of cigarettes were stolen.
