While the shop in Spen Lane was closed overnight between 10pm on Saturday April 5, and 6am on Sunday April 6, entry was forced via a rear door. Cigarettes, alcohol and money was stolen.

Detective constable Cath Lowdon, of Dewsbury CID, said: “I would urge anyone who was in the area and noticed any suspicious behaviour to make contact.

“Given the quantity of items stolen it is possible that a vehicle was used by those responsible, so again anyone who saw items being loaded in to a vehicle or a vehicle driving off at speed are urged to get in touch.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Dewsbury CID on 101 or independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
