Ram raiders damage Asda site

03 April, 2012

Ram raiders have caused around 50,000-worth of damage to a kiosk at an Asda forecourt in Tipton in the West Midlands. They used a stolen Mitsubishi Shogun for the raid, which happened at 3.20am on March 27.

They reversed the Shogun into the kiosk, causing it to collapse. The petrol station safe was buried in the rubble and despite their best efforts to retrieve it, the men got away on foot empty handed.

Detective Sergeant Mike Greenland from Force CID said: "We are following up a number of leads and forensic opportunities but also need the public's help to try and find these men.

One of the men is described as around 5ft 8ins tall. He wore a light grey hooded jacket, a black balaclava and dark bottoms.
