‘Professional’ gang kill pets in £40k shop raid
Sick thieves killed precious fish in a callous act of violence during a £40k break-in at a popular Dudley pet shop.
The gang tore through The Big Pet Store in Hereward Rise, Halesowen, after cutting through a chain on the gate and smashing in the front door on Saturday, November 24.
Manager Darren Burke, 32, said he was perplexed by the needless violence and said the gang were ‘professional’ as they targeted high-value items during the raid.
