A new town centre store on Newcastle Avenue has been burgled.
Vape, which sells electronic cigarettes, has only been open for two months.
The shop was targeted on the morning of Friday 13th June.
The raider managed to force his way into the rear of the building and stole a laptop from the back office before fleeing.
Daniel France, manager at the Vape store, said: “I was just driving to work in the morning when I received a phone call from the landlord.”
“He said that someone had been seen running out of the shop and down the street with stock.”
“Luckily, that was all that was taken, it could have been a lot worse.”
Police are now investigating.
