Armed robbery at Longwick

ARMED Robbers held up the Total garage in Longwick on Saturday night and came away with cigarettes and money.

It happened around 9.30pm on January 22 and involved two men who had their faces covered with scarves and were wearing gloves.

Police are now appealing for witnesses of the robbery which took place at Lower Icknield Way.

Det Con Jemma Schofield, investigating the robbery, said: “Fortunately the cashier wasn’t injured but we are still taking this distressing incident very seriously and will not tolerate this type of crime.

“We believe that both men could have been holding black handguns while they threatened the members of staff.

“I urge anyone who was in the area around the time and may have seen suspicious activity, before or after the robbery occurred, to get in touch.

“The management at the Total Garage are putting forward £3,000 as a reward for information leading to the conviction of those responsible.”

Anyone with any information about the incident is asked to contact Det Con Schofield at High Wycombe police station via 0845 8 505 505, or if you don’t want to talk to the police or give your name, call the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.
