THIEVES stole more than �400 from bags belonging to shop workers at a pet store in WGC.

Cash Cards, a passport, a driving licence and �410 in cash was taken from staff at Time 4 Pets in the Howard Centre on Saturday.

The bags had been left at the back of the shop in the staff room, as workers assisted customers between 12.45pm and 2pm.

One staff member told the WHT: "I don't know how they did it. We didn't see anyone suspicious. Whoever did it was very clever."

Police are appealing for anyone who was in the shop at the time and saw anything unusual to get in touch.

Pc Shaun Deal said: "This was an unfortunate incident where someone has taken advantage of the fact that shop assistants were busy.
