Officers investigating a burglary at the Co-Op store on Southleigh Road, Emsworth, have made five arrests.

We were called in the early hours of this morning (Thursday 20 May) to reports that the store had been broken into shortly before 4am.

Officers attended and found that the front door had been smashed and entry gained to the store.

The offenders had left the scene by the time officers arrived.

A large quantity of tobacco and cigarettes were taken. The store was closed at the time and no-one was hurt.

Subsequent enquiries by officers led to the arrest of a 30-year-old woman from Emsworth, a 29-year-old man from Hilsea, a 44-year-old man of no fixed abode, a 39-year-old man from Emsworth and a 35-year-old man from Havant all on suspicion of burglary.

All five remain in police custody at this time and enquiries are ongoing.

We would like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time and may have seen or heard anything.
