During the operations, police also seized several items believed to have been used in the incident, including two vehicles and the tools used to break into the premises.

Five cartons of cigarettes of various brands and 250 cartons of beer were reported to be stolen.

Preliminary investigations revealed that the suspects had gained access into the premises after breaking the padlock of the front door.

The case is being investigated under Section 457 of the Penal Code.
