Raiders drive van into shop window

Thousands of pounds worth of damage was caused by would-be theives who smashed their way into a Penn Road store on Friday.

A white van was driven into the window of the Tesco Express store at approx 4:30am.

It’s thought the ram raiders then attempted to steal cigarettes using an angle grinder but left empty-handed after a thief detections spray was activated.

Penn Now reader Andy Walker sent us the above photo of the damage to the store on Friday morning.
