Alongside Post Office Limited we are today offering a reward of up to £10,000 for information on a robbery at a Post Office branch in Shoreham.
A substantial amount of currency, including Sterling and Euros, were stolen during the incident at the Brunswick Road shop on Friday, 22 January.
Two men are believed to have broken into the branch at around 5.25pm before threatening a member of staff with a crowbar. No-one was injured.
The Post Office and Crimestoppers are now offering the reward for information which leads to the arrest and conviction of the culprits.*
Julia Hughes, Regional Manager for Crimestoppers in Sussex, said: “A substantial amount of money was taken during this incident and it is imperative that the culprits are caught.
“There are people out there who know who is responsible and I would urge you to do the right thing and contact us anonymously through our 0800 555 111 phone line or Anonymous Online Form.
“We don’t take personal details, we don’t record calls. We can’t trace calls or information given online. You won’t have to give a statement to police or appear in court.”
One suspect is described as white, 5’8 with a slim build and stubble. He was wearing a balaclava, blue padded jacket and black tracksuit bottoms with pink underwear. The other was also wearing a balaclava and a dark jacket with grey sleeves. He was carrying a hi-vis satchel.
If you have any information, please contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or through our Anonymous Online Form.
