One in light denim jeans, a blue jumper and a cream hat crouched down to load up his loot.

He used both hands to take as much as he could, dropping some of them on the floor as he went.

The second clad all in black with his hood up loaded up his bag next to him.

He then made his way across the aisle to take more products.

A member of staff behind the counter looked bemused as they carried out the brazen rain.

It happened at the branch of Boots on Station Road, Chingford east London yesterday (21 Apr) afternoon.

Locals slammed the crooks, as reported on Need To Know.

One said: “I live on that road, usually an okay safe place.”

Another added: “Police station is two minutes away.
