Officers were called at about 3.30am to reports of a burglary in progress at the Best One store in Greenways.
Two masked men were seen running from the location on foot with cigarettes before officers arrived on scene.
The men were believed to have then entered a vehicle – a red BMW – and a police pursuit began with the help of the NPAS police helicopter.
During the pursuit the vehicle was lost. No arrests have yet been made and an investigation has been launched.
