Officers investigating an armed robbery in Old Whittington are appealing for information after the recovery of a till stolen in the offence.
At around 7pm on Friday, 13 September, a man entered Netty’s Convenience Store in Whittington Hill.
He demanded the shopkeeper open the till, threatened her with an imitation firearm and then stole the whole till before running left out of the shop and down Whittington Hill.
On Tuesday, 17 September, the till taken during the robbery was found on a grassed area off Newbridge Court, Whittington, while a pair of gloves that were also believed to have been worn by the offender were found in Whittington Hill, close to the junction of Newbridge Street.

The offender was also wearing what has been described as a “Halloween” mask of an old man and was also wearing black gloves.
The victim was not physically hurt in the incident.
