9 Year-Old Managed To Break Free And Run Off To Raise Alarm
Cigarette Robbery Gone Wrong
Three men stole cigarettes from a store in Milton Keynes early on Sunday (May 22nd) but dropped most of them as they fled.
They went into One Stop, in White Horse Drive, Emerson Valley, between 7am and 7.10am - just after it had opened.
One stood guard on the shop door while the other two went behind the counter, threatened a member of staff, and stole cigarettes.
They then entered a rear store room, opened a metal cabinet and stole more cigarettes.
The men left and ran through the underpass, which runs through the H8 Standing Way and then headed towards Tweed Drive and Otter Close in Bletchley.
They were all wearing dark clothing with their faces covered by snoods and woollen hats. One of them also wore carrier bags over his footwear.
Det Con Rob Snell, who is investigating the incident, said: "It seems that the majority of the cigarettes have been recovered as they were dropped by the offenders when they were challenged by members of the public.
"Numerous witnesses have already been identified, but we are keen to trace anyone else who has any information about this incident who has not yet spoken to police."
