Two shops in the same Daventry street were targeted by thieves either late on Sunday night or in the early hours of Monday morning.
The first incident saw the window of a gift shop in Bishops Court broken. Despite trying to break into the building, the offenders did not manage to get inside.
However, a cobbler’s shop across the road was broken into. The offenders forced open the door to the shop and stole a number of cigarette lighters and hip flasks.
It is believed the two incidents happened sometime between 9pm on Sunday, June 15 and 2.20am the following morning.
Witnesses to either incident, or anyone with information, can call Northamptonshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
