The fourth and fifth men were wearing dark coloured hooded tops, dark coloured tracksuit bottoms and one was carrying a black rucksack.

All were wearing scarves to conceal their faces.


PC Victoria McNally, from the Basingstoke Targeted Patrol Team, said: "This burglary happened while the store was open and there would have been customers coming and going when this incident happened.

"We would like to speak to anyone who used the One Stop store from 8pm that evening who may have seen a group hanging around outside or seen any of the men going into or running out of the shop.

"I’d also like to hear from anyone who recognises any of the people in the CCTV images and would urge them to contact us in confidence."
