CCTV stills of Romford pharmacy smash and grab

Hooded thieves are being hunted by Havering Police after carrying out a meticulously planned overnight raid on a Romford pharmacy.

The trio used bolt croppers on the roller shutter padlocks of MIM Pharmacy, in North Street, at around 2.40am on July 11, before smashing the lower window pane of the front door.

Det Barry Carter, of Romford CID, said: “They had arrived by vehicle on the forecourt of the shop. They brought with them large plastic crates which they rapidly filled with perfumes.”

A Sharp shop till and a Dell laptop computer were also stolen, before the raiders all made off in the same vehicle.

“This was an organised well planned smash and grab attack,” said Mr Carter. “The building was alarmed and they made off moments before police arrival.”
