This past weekend a Ladbrokes retail shop was the target of an armed robbery, stealing a large amount of cash and leaving staff shaken by the experience.
The robbery took place on May 29th at around 9:30pm, when an armed man wearing two different sets of glasses entered the shop and demanded money from the staff. The employees complied, and nobody was hurt, although there was a fair bit of fear put into the workers. The robber is described as a caucasian man standing about 5 foot 10 inches in his 50s. He has grey or white stubble, and was found to be wearing a fisherman's cap, two sets of glasses, a white scarf, dark jumper, and blue jacket.
Commenting on the robbery Detective Constable Joseph Keith said, "I'm appealing for anyone with any information to contact us regarding this robbery. The City Centre was busy at the time of the incident, and we know from CCTV that he ran past a number of people as he made his escape through the town."
"We are conducting door to door enquiries and continuing to analyse available CCTV. Any information you have, no matter how small, could make a real difference as part of our broader investigation."
