Break-in at Tesco Express, Netherstowe, Lichfield.

We received a call at 3am this morning (30 September), reporting a break-in at Tesco Express, Netherstowe, Lichfield.

Offenders approached the closed and secure store during the night and forced open the front doors to gain access. Once inside they attacked a self-service till and a cash register.

During the incident the “smoke cloak” security device activated, disturbing the offenders, forcing them to flee the premises.

It is believed that the only item stolen was a bottle of whisky but damage was caused to the front doors and the self-service till.

Anyone with any information on the incident is asked to contact Staffordshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 48 of  30 September.
