Failed Attempt To Steal Cigarettes In Cranbourne North

Casey Crime Investigation Unit detectives are investigating a burglary in Cranbourne North last month.

It is understood three male offenders smashed the front window of a shop with a hammer on South Gippsland Highway about 10.50pm on 27 March.

Police were told the youths gained access into another part of the shop, where one of them attempted to cut the wires covering the front counter.

Another youth attempted to access the cigarette cupboards.
