10:30am Wednesday 18th September 2013 in News
Two men wearing balaclavas stole £300 and a shop assistant’s mobile phone from a pharmacist.
The robbery took place on Monday at about 8.20am from the Consult Pharmacy in Spring Road, Abingdon.
The owner of Consult Pharmacy, who wished to remain anonymous, yesterday said: “I was shocked to see the two men in balaclavas running towards me.
“They stole about £150 from the till and £150 from the safe. They took about 15 boxes of drugs from the shelf, but dropped them on the way out. We were shut for two hours after the burglary, but everything is back to normal now.
“It’s the first time it’s happened. It’s a nice area and you don’t see many things like it.”
Anyone with any information should call the police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
