Armed robbers target Warwick shop

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

An armed robbery by two men wielding a firearm ended with an undisclosed quantity of cash being stolen from the MoneyShop on Middle Road, Warwick, yesterday.

According to a member of staff, the pair wore gloves and helmets but may have been observed earlier at a supermarket close by.

“It was over fast — they were only in there for a minute,” said the man, adding that the raid appeared to have been planned.

Two men entered at the back of the establishment at about 4.20pm, carrying what appeared to be a gun and demanding money before making their escape.

Witnesses are asked to call the Police on 295-0011 or the confidential Crime Stoppers hotline on 800-8477.
