Police investigate armed robbery in Northleach

Police are investigating an armed robbery which happened at a Cotswold store last night, Thursday 8 February.

Officers were called to the Cotswold Store, Market Place, Northleach at about 8.05pm, after three men had threatened staff with a pick axe and other weapons, before making off with cash from the till.

The three men had entered the store shortly before 8.00pm.

The offenders, all described as wearing dark clothing and face coverings, left the shop and are believed to have made off in a car.

Investigating officers would like to hear from anyone who was in Market Place, Northleach earlier in the evening and either saw the offenders or an unfamiliar vehicle arrive in or leave the area.

The incident happened less than two weeks after an armed robbery at a One Stop convenience store in Chipping Campden, also involving three men.

Punchline says: Are criminals targeting rural businesses? It's time to catch these offenders before they strike again.

Anyone with information is asked to call Gloucestershire Constabulary on 101 or email 101@gloucestershire.police.uk  quoting incident 412 of 8 February.
