Detective Inspector Daniel Johnstone, who is investigating the incident, said: “Officers were on routine patrol when they came across this burglary in progress. This should send out a clear warning to burglars that if you attempt to break into businesses in the area then we will be there to arrest you.

“The clothing stolen from the store has been recovered and we have officers at the scene conducting more inquiries. This is a good result and shows the force’s commitment to burglary.”
