Thieves have smashed their way into a Thames bottle store for a few bottles of booze.
Police are investigating the smash and grab at Golddiggers Liquor Warehouse on Pollen St in Thames late Sunday night.
At least one person wearing a dark hoodie smashed the shopfront window next to the door around 10.40pm, Senior Sergeant Ray Malcolmson of Waikato police said.
They stole a “couple of bottles” of booze before fleeing on foot.
The alarm was activated but by the time police, and the store manager, arrived at the store the perpetrators were gone.
