Police have released details of last night’s raid on the Oxenhope Co-op.

Two men forced open the door of the Station Road mini-market after breaking the lock with a saw just after 1am.

They snatched cigarettes from the store and drove off in what is believed to be a black Mondeo estate car.

The thieves sped off towards the Station Road/Keighley Road roundabout, then out of the village along Moorhouse Lane towards Marsh.

Earlier reports said that the men had been seen had been wearing balaclavas.

A staff member at the store in Station Road this morning confirmed that there had been a burglary, but was unable to give further details.

The Oxenhope shop was robbed last December on a Saturday evening by two men wearing balaclavas and armed with hammers.

The same evening the gang robbed the Co-op in Greenside Lane, Cullingworth, two shops in Halifax, and two petrol stations in Bradford.
