National crime prevention initiative Raid-control has expanded its robbery deterrent package to include tobacco products within cigarette gantries. According to the organisation, some criminals have been targeting the tobacco gantries within c-stores and demanding that the person behind the counter hands over cigarettes.

John Birkenshaw, Raid-control chairman, says: "The smoke and dye system forms the fifth pillar of the Raid-control toolkit and works by rendering the stolen cigarettes worthless. The system was first trialled in six convenience stores across the country and proved to be a success."
