RAIDERS stole cigarettes during a break-in at a Bournemouth Co-Op.
They struck at the Ringwood Road branch around 2.30am on Friday morning.
A worker at a nearby store said: “A window was broken.
“The staff were stood outside.
“They barricaded the entrance with breadbaskets, probably so the forensics could work.”

“We would like to apologise to customers for the inconvenience this may have caused.
