Appeal after robbery

Wednesday, February 28, 2018

WE are appealing for information after a robbery at a bank in Lytham.


Police were contacted at shortly after 6pm last night (Tuesday, February 27th) to a report that three men had pulled up at the Santander Bank, Clifton Street, Lytham in a BMW One Series as cash was being delivered to the bank by security guards.


The men used a sledgehammer to smash the glass in the main door as the guards were inside the bank and grabbed a cash box before making off in the silver BMW which was later recovered from Mythop Avenue in the town.


An empty cash box was also recovered and the offenders are believed to have escaped with a substantial amount of cash.


No one was hurt during the incident.


The offenders are described as all wearing dark clothing and balaclavas.


Detective Inspector Alisa Wilson, of West CID, said: “Thankfully no-one was hurt in this incident but the security guards must have been shaken up. I would like to identify anyone who may have captured the silver BMW or the offenders on their vehicle dashcam or who may have witnessed any of the incident to make contact with us.”


Anyone with information should contact police on 101 quoting log number 1094 of February 27th or independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
