Two cunning crooks went to devious lengths to raid a dog walker’s shop in Balham, captured in this dramatic CCTV footage.

CCTV footage outside the shop from the 12 July, shows a man take out a small hammer from his coat pocket and smash the shop window of the Fantastic Doggy Centre, Balham High Road, repeatedly at just before 5am.

He then used a promotional card being displayed in the shop window to cover the hole and walked off.

Then nearly an hour and a half later (6:25am) a second suspect then entered the shop through the broken window and walked straight to the till.
