Armed robbery at GameTime in Somerset

An armed robber last night raided a betting shop.

A man armed with what appeared to be a handgun struck at GameTime in Somerset and escaped with cash stuffed in a white bag.

A police spokesman said the shop, at the corner of Somerset’s Main Road and Hook and Ladder Lane, was hit just before 6pm.

A police spokesman said said an employee at the shop spotted two men on CCTV heading towards the main entrance.

The spokesman added: “The employee unlocked the door as one of the males was attempting to enter. The other remained outside.

“However, as the first male entered the premises, he reportedly brandished what appeared to be a firearm and demanded cash.

“The employee opened the till, and the suspect is said to have removed the cash from it.”

The spokesman said: “The suspects then left the scene on foot headed along Hook and Ladder towards Long Lane.”

He said no one was injured.

One of the men was said to be 5ft 4in, wearing a white helmet, tinted mirror shades, a blue surgical mask, puffy camouflage jacket, black gloves, black pants with two white stripes on each side, and black boots.

GameTime is owned by former Somerset Cup Match legend Albert Steede.
