The offender then returned in the early hours of March 10 and kicked in the board, before entering the premises and leaving again via the rear of the shop.

Perfumes and drugs, believed to be Diazepam, were reported missing.

The offender is described as a white male, of slim build.

The incident happened three weeks ago but Lancashire Police only released the information yesterday.

A spokesman for Lancashire Police said: “We are appealing to anyone with information about this incident to get in touch with us.

“Someone in the area at the time may have seen something.

“Alternatively if you have been offered stolen perfume or drugs for sale you may be able to help with our enquiries.”

Anyone with information about the incident should contact police on 101, quoting log number 1538 of March 9, 2016.
