Po­lice are ap­peal­ing for wit­nesses fol­low­ing a break in at a busi­ness in Stoney­burn.

Be­tween 5.15am and 5.40am on Satur­day (novem­ber 4) two men ar­rived at the day to day premises on Main street, Stoney­burn and forced en­try through a front door.

The sus­pects ar­rived in a dark coloured es­tate car, driven by an­other per­son, which was parked within Knowepark Road, Stoney­burn, dur­ing the theft.

Once in­side the premises, the sus­pects stole a large quan­tity of cig­a­rettes to the value of ap­prox­i­mately £12,000.

The first sus­pect is de­scribed as a white male, aged 30 to 40 years old, of slim build, wear­ing a blue jacket, dark hoodie, faded dark jeans and train­ers.

The sec­ond sus­pect is de­scribed as a white male, of medium build, wear­ing a dark jacket, jeans and train­ers.

Fol­low­ing the theft, the males were driven off in the car from Knowepark Road and left Stoney­burn head­ing west.
