Police are investigating whether a ram raid incident in Kedington this morning is linked to a similar crime in Red Lodge on Saturday.

Just after midnight, a vehicle, believed to be dark in colour and possibly a 4x4, was rammed through the security shutters of the store in Silver Street.

Up to four people then forced entry to the store and stole a quantity of cigarettes before leaving in the vehicle.
