Police are looking to trace masked men who stole cigarettes from a Chesterfield shop

Masked robbers stole a large quantity of cigarettes from the back of a lorry as it was being unloaded at a store in Chesterfield over the weekend

The driver of the lorry was making a delivery at the One Stop store in Moorland View Road just before 7am on Saturday May 4th, when he was approached by two masked men.

The offenders then stole the cigarettes and made off on foot. Officers believe they have then used a nearby vehicle to flee the scene.

Police want to speak to anyone who saw two men acting suspiciously in the area in the early hours of Saturday morning, or have their own CCTV that may have captured the men or a vehicle.
