CCTV: Enquiries continue following Skelmersdale petrol station robbery

Monday, April 1, 2019

We are continuing to appeal for information following a petrol station robbery in Skelmersdale, and have now released CCTV images of a man we would like to speak to.

The incident occurred at around 9.20pm on November 3rd 2018, when a man entered the Shell garage on Grimshaw Road and approached the counter with what appeared to be a shotgun. He demanded money from the till and made off in the direction of Windrows and Willow Hey with around £140.

He is described as white, aged around 40-years-old, dressed in a dark coat – which was possibly being worn inside out - with hood up, lighter tracksuit bottoms and trainers.

We have been conducting enquiries since the incident occurred and are still asking members of the public with information about it to contact us.

We would also now like to speak to the man in the CCTV images (right and below) and are asking anybody who knows who he may be to get in touch.

Det Con Kelly Rosenthal, of Skelmersdale CID, said: “We launched an investigation following the incident and this is still ongoing.

“We are now in a position to release these three CCTV images, and are asking anybody who recognises the man pictured to contact us as soon as possible.

“We are also continuing to ask anybody with information about the incident, or who was in the area at the time and saw anything unusual or suspicious, to get in touch.”

Anyone with information can Skelmersdale CID on (01695) 566165 quoting log 1527 of November 3rd. Alternatively you can call independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
