Suspects have evaded arrest after police were called to a burglary at a Tesco Express.
Officers were called to a report of an alarm activation at the shop in Thornhill Road, Warminster, at approximately 12.40am this morning (Monday).
On arrival, they found suspects acting suspiciously at the rear of the property.
On confronting them, they threatened the officers and damaged a police car – before fleeing at high speed in a black Audi towards Masefield Road.
A pursuit was authorised, however the vehicle was lost to sight and the occupants remain outstanding.
The shop has been cordoned off as a crime scene and forensic work is ongoing.
Wiltshire Police said it is yet to determine what, if anything, was stolen during the incident.
Det Insp Darren Ambrose, of our Burglary Unit, said: “We are working extremely closely with bordering forces as we continue with our enquiries today and would urge anyone who may have seen or heard suspicious activity in the area, or anyone with dash cam, CCTV or doorbell footage from the local area to get in touch immediately.”
