Five people took part in the ram raid at the Bloxwich store, on Lichfield Road, at 3.15am on Sunday.

It is believed the crooks left after an anti-theft smoke device kicked in. The store, which was damaged after the break-in, has since reopened.

A West Midlands Police spokesman said: "It’s understood five suspects drove a 4x4 into the window of the Lichfield Road branch at around 3.15am.

"The group managed to get away with more than £300 worth of alcohol."

Anyone with information should contact police quoting crime number 20WS/201994M/19.
