The Market Drayton Advertiser reports that the police believe raids on two stores where thieves stole thousands of pounds worth of cigarettes may be linked. Thieves wearing balaclavas smashed their way into Audlem's Village Stores in the early hours of Friday 20th January and a similar raid took place at the One Stop Shop in Market Drayton at 2.45am on the following Monday. In the Drayton raid, the robbers escaped in a possibly silver BMW estate. Details of the getaway car used in the Audlem raid have been given to the police.
