Knifepoint robbery at Morecambe garage

Tuesday, December 11, 2018

Detectives have released CCTV images following a knifepoint robbery at a Morecambe fuel station.

It happened at just before 1am yesterday morning (Monday, December 10th) when a man has entered the Texaco Garage on Regent Road. He has produced a knife and threatened a cashier, making demands for money.

The shop worker has then opened the till and handed over a quantity of cash.

PC Stu Kane from Lancaster Police said: “Despite the man working in the garage not being physically hurt, he has understandably been left shaken up by this ordeal. 

“While the images don’t show the man’s face, the clothing is quite distinctive and so I would ask anyone who recognises it or has any information to get in touch.”

The man is described as around 6ft 2ins tall and was wearing a black ski mask, a red and black cap, a Crombie-style overcoat and purple plastic gloves. He spoke with a heavy, gruff voice.

Anyone with information can email 4845@lancashire.pnn.police.uk or can call 01524 596451. If you fail to get an answer, please call 101 quoting incident reference 0040 of December 10th.
