Thieves jumped over the counter at a convenience store in Nuthall and stole a sack full of cigarettes.

Two males walked into McColls in Ash Crescent with their faces covered carrying a ‘large building sack’. They jumped over the counter and filled the sack before getting into a vehicle that was waiting for them outside.

Police said staff ‘moved to the back of the shop’ as the incident took place on December 16 at 5.30pm.

Back in 2012 the store was targeted by two robbers armed with a gun. They stole cash.

Call police on 101 and quote reference number 620-16122013 with any information.
