POLICE have found a crowbar and metal cutters outside a store which has been targeted twice by thieves in a matter of weeks.
Two thugs are being blamed for both raids on the Co-operative store, in Greenock Road, Bishopton.
The crowbar and cutters were found outside the shop after thieves fled the scene seconds before police arrived.
It’s understood the crooks, who were wearing dark jackets, had tried in vain to force open a front door of the business last week.
One source said: “Someone heard a noise and spotted two men in dark clothing trying to get into the shop. They realised what these guys were up to, so they phoned the police.
“The quick arrival of the cops must have spooked the thieves. They left in such a hurry that they forgot to take their break-in tools with them.”
Previously, the store was targeted in the early hours of November 24, when two men broke in and stole cigarettes.
On that occasion, the suspects were described as wearing dark clothing and carrying a crowbar.
Constable Chris Craig has appealed for information about both incidents.
