Police are appealing for witnesses following an attempted break-in which took place around 1.30am on Thursday 12 April at the Day-Today premises in the West Main Street area of Armadale.

Four men arrived at the store in a dark-coloured saloon car and attempted to force entry to the front of the property.

The suspects failed to gain entry and left the area in the vehicle heading towards Armadale Cross.

They were all described as wearing dark-coloured clothing with hoods covering their faces.

Inquiries are ongoing and anyone with information is asked to get in touch with officers.

Detective Constable Jo McCall of Livingston CID said: “This attempted break-in has resulted in the business sustaining extensive damage to their roller shutter, and if it had not been for vigilant members of the public entry may have been gained.

“We are eager to trace those responsible and ask that anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area at the time, or has information that help us trace those responsible, contacts us as soon as possible.”

Those with information are asked to contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident number 0216 of 12 April, or make an anonymous report through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
