In the latest attack, ram-raiders attempted to break through the store’s shutters using an Audi A3 in the early hours of this morning (Thursday, February 13).

It comes just over a year after the entire floor to celing window of the store was smashed by ram-raiders in a Kia Picanto in December 2018.

The raiders grabbed North Face jackets before fleeing the scene in a getaway car.
