THIS is the car detectives are hunting for after it was used in a burglary last week.

Officers have appealed for information about a white Skoda Octavia which was driven with stolen number plates.

Shortly after 10pm on Sunday, January 21, thugs drove into the rear car park at the back of Lloyds Pharmacy in High Street, Crowthorne.

They forced their way into the pharmacy with a crowbar and tried to steal a safe inside the store.

However, the bungling thieves were foiled by the safe and left empty handed.

Now, officers want to track down the car which was used during the botched raid.

Police constable Paul Bentley said: "I would like to appeal to anyone who saw a similar vehicle in the High Street or Crowthorne area and also anyone who may have seen it travel down Heath Hill Road South area at around the time of the offence."

The thugs were described as two men, one with a stocky build and the other a thin build. They were both wearing black clothing, gloves and balaclavas.

A spokesman for Thames Valley Police said: “Thames Valley Police is releasing a CCTV image of a car officers would like to trace in connection with the burglary of a pharmacy in Crowthorne.

“Officers would like to appeal for information about a white Skoda Octavia which had been driven on stolen number plates.

“They forced entry through the rear doors of Lloyds Pharmacy with a crowbar. Once inside they attempted to lever the safe to steal it however were unsuccessful and left empty-handed.”
