The incident happened around 1.15am this morning (Thursday) at the Spar store on Main Street.

Local officers have been conducting various lines of inquiry and have established that three men, who left the area in a dark blue Saab estate car, were responsible.
Anyone with information that can help identify these individuals is asked to come forward.
Sergeant Pat Turner from St Andrews Police Station said: “The suspects attempted to hide their identities with items of clothing obscuring their faces while they were within the shop.
“However, we know that one was wearing a light-coloured North Face hooded top whilst a second had on a distinctive black jacket with a white stripe down the full length of the arm.
“We believe the car they used to make off from the area was a dark-coloured Saab estate motor car and was either a 93 or 95 model. We are actively looking to trace this vehicle and its occupants.
“Anyone who can assist us with our ongoing investigation should contact police immediately.”
