Shortly after closing for the day, two men forced entry into the branch and made staff open the safe. The two took a quantity of money from within, and left the staff shaken but uninjured.
Detective Sergeant Stu Baker said:
“We know there were many people near the Co-op at the time of the robbery. We would encourage them to call us.”
