Burglars target stores in Burwell and Fordham, making off with thousands of pounds worth of cigarettes
Burglars have targeted convenience stores in Burwell and Fordham, making off with thousands of pounds worth of goods.
At about 2.30am on Monday a gang had broken through the Carter Street store's fire escape and stole £5,000 worth of cigarettes.
The break-in was just days after another Co-Op branch was broken into in Burwell.
On Friday alarms on the North Street store were triggered at about 2am with thieves stealing 'a large quantity' of cigarettes.
And a Tesco store in St Ives was also targeted in a similar burglary last week.
A Cambridgeshire Police spokesman said the force believed the incidents are linked, and are now looking for three men in connection with the break-ins.
"Anyone with information should contact police on 101, quoting incident 54 of May 27 or alternatively report it online," the force spokesman said.
