Today we are offering a reward of up to £2,000 for information on the whereabouts of Aaron McKenzie, who is wanted in connection with two attempted robberies in Wrexham.
McKenzie is wanted for questioning following an attempt by a gang of three men to rob two shops in the Wrexham area on Sunday February 12.
One of the men is believed to have been armed with a hammer and the other with a knife.
The first incident happened at around 7.50am at the McColls newsagents in Rhosnesni Lane, Wrexham. Two of the men failed to gain entry and threatened a delivery driver who confronted them, before making off in a red Fiat being driven by a third offender.
The males made their way to Gresford where they entered the Spar Shop on Chester Road.
Two of the men entered the shop brandishing the knife and hammer, where they threatened staff and demanded the contents of the safe.
Two arrests have been made already, but McKenzie’s whereabouts are currently unknown.
We are now offering the reward of up to £2,000 for information given to the charity that leads to the arrest of McKenzie.
Gary Murray, North Wales Regional Manager for Crimestoppers, said: “These two incidents were particularly harrowing for the people threatened, and while the robberies were unsuccessful, it’s vital we don’t let incidents like this happen again.
“We would urge anyone with information on Aaron McKenzie’s whereabouts to please contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online.
“We don’t want to know who you are, you won’t have to give a statement to police or go to court.”
If you have any information, please contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or through our Anonymous Online Form.
*Note: The reward is valid for three months and will only qualify if information is passed to Crimestoppers’ 0800 555 111 number or anonymous online form. Information passed directly to police will not qualify.
