Police release TV images of men wanted over ram-raid

Police have released images of two men wanted in connection with a ram-raid on a West Yorkshire store.

Masked raiders fled with cigarettes after targeting the Londis convenience store in Cleckheaton in late November.

An N-registration Mitsubishi Shogun was used to reverse into the shutters of the store on Bradford Road on November 30.

Two masked men then stole cigarettes before fleeing the scene in the Shogun, which was last seen heading towards Heckmondwike along the A62.

Closed-circuit TV images from the scene at the time of the crime show two masked men carrying out the burglary.

One was wearing dark clothing and the other was wearing a black and yellow coat.

West Yorkshire Police said inquiries had since discovered that the Shogun had been stolen from an address in Rosley Mount in the Woodside area of Bradford earlier that morning.

Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Paul Greatorex at Dewsbury CID via 0845 6060606.

In a separate incident, which is not thought to be linked, thousands of pounds were stolen when a supermarket was ram-raided and a cash machine taken in the early hours of Thursday morning. A Navy blue Shogun rammed the window of the Sainsbury's supermarket in Acre Street, Lindley, Huddersfield, before a gang of up to six men stole the cash machine and fled in the Shogun and a Mercedes.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Huddersfield CID via 0845 6060606.
