MEN armed with a hammer and a crowbar forced staff at Kenilworth shop to hand over cash from the safe. The pair stormed into the One Stop Community Stores in Oaks Precinct at about 8.30pm on Monday (21 Feb 2011), demanding money. After threatening the shop staff, the workers opened the safe.
The robbers placed the cash and some cigarettes in a black bin liner before leaving through the back of the shop. It’s believed the men left the back of the store, turned right and fled the scene in a waiting car. Officers plotted their route by using sniffer dogs. Officers are appealing for witnesses who saw the men enter or leave the shop, or who saw a car they did not recognise parked at the back of the precinct in Caesar Road.
Those with information are urged to call Detective Constable Sarah Niblett at Leamington Spa CID on 01926 684270, voicemail 10597, as soon as possible. Information can also be given, in confidence, via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. (Source: Coventry Telegraph)
