Police have appealed for help after two men stole thousands of pounds worth of cleaning products from a pound store in Birmingham.

The pair broke into Pound Plus on Dudley Road, Winson Green, on 17 July between 2am and 3:10am, and took £5,000 worth of shampoo, toothpaste, car air fresheners and floor cleaner, as well as a large amount of cash.

West Midlands Police have since released images of the hooded suspects in the hope that a member of the public will recognise them.

Detective Sergeant Lucy Bird, from Birmingham CID, said: "The brazen thieves spent over an hour in the store picking the items they wanted before making off with a large amount of branded shampoos and cleaning products.
