SANDWICH shop owners have been left reeling after a break-in by thieves who dropped in through the roof.

The culprits climbed 20ft down from the roof of The Bank on Trinity Road in Halifax town centre and ransacked the shop.

Anne Paszko, who owns the store with her son, estimates the raid will cost them thousands.

“I’m devastated,” she said.

“They’ve made such a mess.”

The thieves stole cash from the till and caused a catalogue of damage.

The shop was unable to open today because of the scale of the damage caused but Mrs Paszko hoped to be open again on Monday.

Mrs Paszko, who runs the shop, bought the store with her son in August 2010

The break-in is believed to have happened between 3pm yesterday and 7.15am today.

Anyone with information that might help police is being urged to call officers via 101.

Information can also be passed on anonymously by calling crime-fighting charity Crimetoppers on 0800 555111.
