The pair, who can be seen smashing the windowpane of a doorway to enter the bottle store, stole five or six bottles in the 4.30am raid before fleeing south towards Ritchie St.

Police want to speak to anyone who may have noticed anything unusual in the area before or after the time of the burglary.
