A SANDIACRE shop has been burgled twice in the last week, police have said.

The first incident was last Tuesday at about 10.40pm when four burglars pulled up outside the Spar store in Stanton Road and forced open the shutters and front door before stealing cigarettes.

Then at around 10.35pm on Sunday two burglars drove up to the store, forced open the security shutters and broke in, again to steal cigarettes.

The burglars escaped in a red Volkswagen Golf and wore dark clothing on both occasions and police are linking the two crimes.

Anyone with information, or who saw a car matching the description in the area at the time, should call Derbyshire police on 0345 123 3333 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
