Footage has been released of a Dodge Ram smashing through the front of a Daisy Hill tobacconist.

Police said the utility was used to “break-in” to another tobacconist at Waterford West and a newsagency in Holmview on the same morning, 9 June, and had been linked to multiple other attempted break-ins.

“The offenders have taken an amount of tobacco products from the Daisy Hill shop,” a police statement sent.

The CCTV clip shows the ute reversing through the front glass door of the business, which was protected by three steel bollards.

It took two attempts for the ute to make it through.

Multiple people can then be seen entering the premises, with one of them seemingly injuring their lower leg on a piece of the broken doorframe.

The footage shows the injured person hobbling out of the store, while others enter to fill bags with products.

Initial investigations suggest the black Dodge was stolen from a Nerang address between 9pm on 8 June and 2am on 9 June, according to police.

The vehicle was then used to gain access to the local businesses.

“A black BMW 320D which had been stolen from Helensvale on June 7 was also sighted at these incidents,” the statement said.

“The Dodge Ram was located burnt out at around 5.30am in Kingston on June 9.”

Police are appealing for any witnesses or anyone who may have dashcam vision in or around these areas at the time of the incidents to contact police.
