Officers were called to the Co-Op food store in Canhams Road, Great Cornard at around 4am.

Two offenders forced their way into the store via the front door and once inside, they broke into a cigarette kiosk and stole a quality of tobacco products.

They then left and got into a dark coloured saloon type car and exited the car park by turning left into Canhams Road and then drove off in the direction of Head Lane.
