BURGLARS have targeted a convenience store in Birchwood less than two weeks after it was robbed at knifepoint.

A quantity of cash wash stolen from the ATM at Nisa Local on Glover Road after two offenders broke in through the roof in the early hours of yesterday.

The men entered the building shortly before 3.30am and used an angle grinder to access the cash machine.

They took a quantity of cash before leaving at around 4.10am.

Detective constable Ian Morris said: “This was a serious incident, and we are committed to doing all that we can to trace the people responsible and bring them to justice.

“The investigation is currently in its early stages and we’re following a number of lines of enquiry, including CCTV and forensics.

“As part of the investigation, I want to hear from anyone who witnessed anything suspicious in the Glover Road area between 3.15am and 4.30am on Thursday, October 3.

“The same goes for any motorists who drove past the store around the time of the incident and believes they may have captured the offenders on their dashcams.

“I urge anyone with any information, no matter how small, to call the team here at Warrington CID.”

This latest incident comes only days after an armed robbery at the same store.

A masked robber threatened staff with a knife during a raid at around 2.30pm on Sunday, September 22, while a young boy was in the shop.

The robbery has been linked to another incident at around 10.30pm the previous evening, in which a man flagged down a bus on Chatfield Drive before brandishing a kitchen knife and stealing his takings.

Police issued CCTV footage of a man wanted in connection with the two incidents.

Anyone with information on the burglary is urged to contact Cheshire Police on 101, quoting incident number IML529160, or to call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
