Appeal issued after robbery at Linslade Tesco

10 Aug 2018

We are seeking witnesses to come forward with information, after a supermarket was robbed in Linslade yesterday afternoon (Thursday).

At approximately 2.10pm, five men, described as white men in their 20s, entered the Tesco store on Vimy Road and made their way to the mobile phone department.

They proceeded to threaten the staff and were able to take a significant number of high-value mobile phones from behind the counter.

The offenders, who spoke with Irish accents, then made off from the store, heading in the direction of the canal situated behind the building.

None of the staff members were injured in the incident.

Detective Sergeant Paul Breed, investigating, said: “This appears to have been a thoroughly planned robbery, with the offenders spending only minutes in the store in total.

“We are following a number of leads, but any information from people in the area could be vital in helping us track down those responsible."

Anyone with information is asked to visit our reporting centre on its website, or contact DS Breed by calling 101, quoting incident 217 of 9 August.

Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers, anonymously, by calling 0800 555 111.
