Four men forced their way into the Soham branch of Asda on Monday, stealing cigarettes before leaving the area.

Police were contacted at 1.26am on December 11 with reports of burglary in Clay Street, Soham.

“Scenes of crime officers have attended and an investigation is ongoing,” said a police spokesman. “No arrests have been made.”

The burglary comes after two Littleport shops were targeted by burglars at the weekend.

The village’s branch of Costcutter was hit by ram-raiders on Saturday (December 9) before burglars targeted the Co-op store in the early hours of Monday morning (December 11).
