Raiders trash Brighton shop
8:58am Tuesday 9th July 2013 in News
Burglars trashed a shop and caused thousands of pounds worth of damage during a raid.
Police were called to Preston Foods in Preston Drove, Brighton, during the early hours of yesterday morning after reports of a break- in.
The suspects forced their way through the front door and stole various items, including hundreds of cigarettes.
The shop’s owner, Syed Shah, said the thieves caused £15,000 worth of damage.
He added: “They caused so much damage in under three minutes, it’s unbelievable.
"We’re trying to survive in this hard economic climate and then this happens. It makes it hard for us. I’m very shocked.”
Mr Shah was the victim of an armed robbery three years ago at the same shop.
He was stabbed during the incident.
