It is thought that this burglary could be related to a suspicious incident at the shop two weeks previously when a man was found in the rear of the premises, claiming to be looking for a toilet.

This man was white, with a large build and between 35 and 40 with dark collar length hair. He had a scar down his right cheek from the side of his eye to the corner of his mouth. He wore a pink, blue and white scarf, a grey cap with a bobble and a blue coat.
