Police hunting for a trio of armed robbers who raided a Warrington store have released CCTV images of the suspects.
The three masked men, wielding baseball bats, entered a shop on School Road in Orford at around 10pm on April 22. They demanded money from shop workers and damaged the premises.
The raiders, all dressed in black with black masks, then took ‘a quantity of cigarettes’ before fleeing the area. Police are investigating the robbery and have now issued several images of the suspects in the hope of identifying them.
Detective Constable Neil Mooney, of Cheshire Police, said: “This distressing incident has left a staff member extremely shaken and I want to make it clear that we are doing all we can to locate the offenders and bring them to justice.
“As part of our investigation we’ve now released the CCTV images of the men we are looking to identify.
“While the men have their faces covered, you may recognise their clothing or their build, and I would urge anyone who thinks that they know the identity of the suspects to get in touch.
“The same goes for anyone who witnessed anything suspicious, or anyone with any CCTV or dashcam footage which may our investigation.”
Anyone with information is urged to contact Cheshire Police via the website quoting IML 1530589 or call 101. Information can also be passed on to Crimestoppers anonymously online or by calling 0800 555 111.
