Appeal for information following Widnes robbery

Police are appealing for information following a robbery at the Co-Op at the junction of Liverpool Road and Hale Road, Widnes.

At around 10pm on Monday three men have entered the store via a rear door and demanded cash and cigarettes from members of staff.

The 3 offenders have taken a large quantity of cigarettes before leaving through the same back door. The cigarettes taken were in a distinctive blue plastic box with a grey lid which would have been very heavy due to the amount of tobacco taken. The box is still outstanding.

One of the offenders was believed to be wearing a black ‘The North Face’ jacket similar to the one shown.

Police are asking anyone who may have seen the men leaving the scene or who may have information which could help the investigation to call 101 quoting incident number 994 of the 27 July. Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
