Police say they are investigating ‘a number of lines of enquiry’ after a pharmacy in St Ives was raided for a third time inside a month.

Officers say a large quantity of perfume and other items were stolen from Lloyds Pharmacy, in Kings Hedges, in the early hours of Monday (November 13).

A brick was used to smash a window and entry was gained.

The raid came just four days after a similar attack at the business, in which offenders again smashed a window to gain access to the premises, filling plastic bags with perfume and “pharmaceuticals” from the dispensary.

A near-identical raid also took place in the early hours of October 17, with three men seen on CCTV smashing their way into the store before filling bags with perfume.
