Three men have been arrested today (April 17) and a police helicopter launched after a Co-op was targeted by raiders for the second time in a month.
The attempted ram raid happened in the early hours of this morning in Mill Street, Isleham.
Three men are now being held by police for questioning.
A force spokeswoman said: “An investigation has been launched following an attempted ram raid in Cambridgeshire in the early hours of this morning (Tuesday).
“The incident took place at the Co-Op in Mill Street, Isleham, at around 4.35am.
“Officers attended the scene, along with the police helicopter, and shortly afterwards three men were arrested and have been taken to police custody for questioning.”
