After smashing the window he climbs into the shop and runs over to the counter before grabbing two tills.

The man runs back inside and grabs a tablet from the till before getting back into the car and driving off.

The whole raid, which took place at 00.50am on August 9, took just over two minutes.

Ronak Patel, his wife Jaanki Patel, and a third person who wishes to remain anonymous, bought the pharmacy three years ago.

The owner said that this is the first time the pharmacy, which has existed since the mid-1700s and was Roald Dahl’s local chemist, has been broken into.

They added: ‘This is the last thing we needed especially with the recent pharmacy cuts.

‘We are vital part of the community and provide an essential service to all the residents of the village.’

A spokesperson for Thames Valley Police said: ‘Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses after the Kinton Pharmacy in High Street, Great Missenden, was broken into. 

‘At around 12.55am on Thursday morning (9/8), officers were called to reports that a window had been smashed and the pharmacy had been broken into. Two people then left the scene in a dark coloured car in the direction of Amersham.

‘If anybody has any information, or believes they witnessed the incident, please call 101, quoting reference number 43180243597.’
