Burglars smashed their way into a shop to steal alcohol and tobacco.

Hertfordshire police have released images of two people they are trying to trace in connection to a break in at Londis in Baldwins Lane, Croxley Green, just before 2am on Wednesday, March 27.

Watford Observer:

The people want to speak to these people, wearing distinctive clothing

The intruders reportedly prised open the shop shutters before smashing a pane of glass to gain entry.

They then stole a large quantity of cigarettes and alcohol before driving away in a Renault van towards Watford.

PCSO Steven Jacob, from the Rickmansworth and Croxley Green Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “I appreciate you cannot see the people’s faces in these images however they are wearing distinctive items of clothing.

“We believe one person is wearing Nike Air Max 97 trainers and the other is wearing camouflage-style trousers. If you think you know the people pictured, please get in touch.”
