Main article content
Officers are appealing for witnesses after thousands of pounds was stolen from a security worker during a robbery in Cheltenham yesterday (Monday 6 December).
Police were called to Texaco Garage on Lansdown Road at 3.20pm after it was reported that the worker was walking from the garage, and across the forecourt, when an unknown man grabbed the cash box and ran in the direction of the town centre.
The offender was described as being a mixed race man in his 20s, approximately 5ft 10ins tall and of a slim build. He was wearing dark clothing which included a black shiny tracksuit, black baseball cap and white Adidas trainers with black detailing.
Investigating officers have issued two CCTV images of the man and anyone who recognises him is asked to please get in contact.
Police would also like to hear from anyone who saw the man running away with quite a sizable cash box or who was in the area and has dashcam/CCTV footage.
