  • Detectives are continuing to make enquiries today as part of the investigation into the robbery that took place at the Shell garage at Fraddon, next to Kingsley Village yesterday evening around 10.30pm, Monday 17 September.
    Officers are aware that the nearby McDonalds car park is a place young people often meet up with their cars. It’s possible someone in that area, with friends, may have seen the suspect either before or after the incident took place.
    A police spokesman said: “If anyone who was in the vicinity of the Shell garage, such as the McDonalds car park, saw anyone acting suspiciously we’d like to hear from them. They may have a small detail that could help us catch this offender.”
    Anyone with information about this incident can call 101 and quote log 801 of 17 September, alternatively they can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
