Police appeal for witnesses to Crawl Hill gas station robbery
Police are appealing to any witnesses of the robbery that took place at Crawl Hill Tigermart on Saturday morning to come forward.
Police received a report at about 5.10am of a burglary at the Hamilton Parish station.
A Bermuda Police Service spokesman said: “The caller stated there was a man attempting to gain entry to the premises by shaking the front door.
“The caller reported the suspect eventually gained entry by striking the glass door with an object.
“CCTV footage was reviewed and captures the suspect inside the establishment removing cigarettes before making good his escape.”
As previously reported by The Royal Gazette, two members of staff from the station’s Buzz concession were at work when the robbery took place.
The station’s owner said they saw the robber, who was wearing a helmet, approach the station brandishing a hammer. He smashed through the glass door of the premises before gaining entry.
At that time the two Buzz employees fled to a back room.
Enquiries into the incident are ongoing and anyone with information is asked to call 211 or, the main police number, 295-0011.
