Investigating officer, Det Con Kay Chahal, of Chiltern and South Bucks local CID, said: ‘Yesterday morning’s incident involved offenders attempting to access the shop by dismantling a brick wall. Those responsible were disturbed and ran off.

Due to the very rare nature of this incident and the method used to try and gain access, we believe that this was an organised crime. We are currently making enquiries both across our own Force and neighbouring Forces to see whether other incidents of this nature have recently been reported.

Meanwhile, I would like to urge similar businesses to remain vigilant and to report any suspicious people or vehicles to police.
