QUANTITIES of cash were stolen when two shops were broken into – one in Rednal and one in Barnt Green – within 24 hours of each other.
In the first incident a store in Groveley Lane, Rednal, was targeted – that happened overnight between Thursday and Friday.
A day later – overnight between Friday and Saturday – a food shop was broken into in Hewell Road, Barnt Green.
On both occasions the thieves, after gaining access, stole cash from the tills.
Witnesses or anyone with any information on either of the incidents should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
