POLICE are appealing for public help to find balaclava-clad robbers who targeted a Co-op in Coventry.

The four men struck the Co-operative supermarket on Alfall Road, Stoke, on Saturday March 7.

A spokesman for West Midlands Police said: “We want to speak to these men following a burglary at a Co-op store on Alfall Road, Coventry at 10.45pm on Saturday 7 March.

“Four masked men pulled up in a Ford Transit van, which was believed to be displaying false plates with the registration number KM12 OTK.

“They forced entry into the shop, before stealing a large quantity of cigarettes and alcohol and left in the direction of Dennis Road.

“If you recognise them, or have any information, please contact us quoting crime reference number 20CV/61766Q/20 via Live Chat at west-midlands.police.uk between 8am and midnight, call 101 anytime or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
