Police are investigating after Kent-based Kennington Garage was targeted by thieves.

The criminals smashed their way through a double-glazed window to get into the building and took the till along with a box of chocolates.

Owner, Edward Crouch said: “It is really annoying but they only got about three pounds and a box of Matchmakers a customer left us.

“We don’t leave notes in the till and there was only a little bit of change left in it.

“We haven’t had anything like this happen for years – I am very surprised because we are alarmed and it did go off.

“They must have got in and out very quickly.”
