Masked burglars stole cigarettes from the post office in Napton last night (Monday) after forcing their way in.
The incident happened at about 9.20pm when the group of three or four intruders broke in by using a crow bar and kicking the front door.
They were disturbed by two members of the public and fled in a silver-colour Mercedes towards Brickyard Road.
