Police are investigating a ram raid at a Thames shopping centre overnight on September 5.

The ram raid was reported to Police at 3am, after a car was found abandoned in the Mary St shopping centre entrance.

Initial enquiries indicate that one store in the shopping centre was entered by the offenders, with a number of items taken.

Police have confirmed the car left at the shopping centre had earlier been stolen.

Enquiries are under way to identify and locate the offenders, Police said.

Anyone with information which could assist our enquiries is asked to contact Police via 105, quoting file number 230905/2875.

Information can also be provided anonymously via Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111.

This is the second time the mall has been ram raided. 

On July 6, around 2am, ram raiders smashed through a Thames shopping mall using five vehicles, entering through one set of doors and out another, causing extensive damage along their path.

Mall manager John Freer told The Profile at the time that the assailants drove through the front doors by Specsavers before continuing down the concourse and smashing into The Warehouse.

They then turned around, hit Vice Vape Co and a computer kiosk, and exited out of the main doors of the mall.
