Raid on Local Construction Store
Gang target Hilti in the West Cross Centre
Police are investigating a burglary that took place at a construction equipment store earlier this month.
Two men drove up to the Hilti store on Shield Drive in the West Cross Centre at 3.20pm on Sunday 7th October. Security staff saw a black BMW convertible approach the store and park up followed by a white Ford Transit van which reversed up in front of the repairs entrance to the warehouse.
A black male got out of the BMW with a pole like object in his hand, walked up to the door and smashed the bottom pane of glass. A stocky white male then got out of the white van and items from the warehouse were loaded into the van. The black male then returned to BMW and drove off, followed by the white van.
The black male was wearing a grey jumper and possibly a Balaclava. The white male was wearing a bobble hat and a brown and white jumper.
