CCTV is to be looked at following a spate of robberies at Tesco Express stores in Birmingham.
Extra security measures such as CCTV are being put in place, plus the opening hours cut at a number of the stores following the break-ins.
The latest Tesco Express store to be targeted is on Sutton Road, Wylde Green, where three men raided the store at around 6.30am on Friday, January 20.
Police are now appealing for any witnesses to come forward.
Two of the suspects jumped over the counter and threatened members of staff. They filled a bag with cigarettes, scratchcards and alcohol before fleeing the store, running away towards the Yenton pub.
A number of Tesco Express stores in the area have been targeted by thieves over the past few months. In December last year, the Tesco Express store in Green Lane, Castle Bromwich, was targeted and the security guard had a cash box stolen from him.
A Tesco spokeswoman confirmed that some of the hours have been changed at a number of stores but will be a temporary measure whilst the police investigate the break-ins and new security measures are put in place.
A West Midlands Police spokeswoman said: “We are appealing for information after a Tesco Express store was targeted by thieves.”
Police officers are now continuing with their enquiries and will be looking at CCTV as part of their investigation.
Any witnesses, or anyone with information is urged to call West Midlands Police on 101.
