Police appealing for bank robbery witnesses
POLICE have appealed for witnesses to come forward with any information following the attempted burglary of the HSBC bank in Melbourn Street, Royston, at around 1.15am Tuesday morning.
It is believed the offenders drove a silver Mitsubishi Evo into the window to break the glass, and once inside unsuccessfully attempted to gain access to a cash machine.
A green Mitsubishi L200 Pick Up was also at the scene, and drove off with the silver car towards the A505. The silver one was later discovered abandoned on the A10 towards Cambridge.
Investigating officer, DC Will Ainsworth said: “I am appealing to anyone who may have seen the incident take place to get in contact. I would also be interested to speak to anyone who may have seen the described vehicles in the local area. These cars have also been spotted in Bedfordshire and Cambridge.”
Anyone with information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, is asked to contact police on the non-emergency number 0845 33 00 222.
