Appeal after cash in transit robbery in Ormskirk

Police are appealing for witnesses after a robbery on a cash in transit van in Ormskirk this afternoon.

At around 2pm today (Wednesday 30 July) two men in balaclavas approached a security guard carrying a cash box outside Morrisons on Park Road. They told the security guard to drop the box before taking making off with the box.
It is believed that the two offenders then made off in a Black BMW convertible which was waiting for them on Aughton Street. The driver of the vehicle is described as a while male with a stocky build. The black box was later found smashed on Black Moss Lane.

DI Jane Webb from Lancashire Police said:

I would urge anybody who has witnessed this incident or anyone who appears to have indigo blue dye or ink marks on their clothing or body to contact the police on 101 quoting reference number LC-20140730-0700.”

“Similarly, I would appeal to anyone who saw the Black BMW or who has any information that could assist with our investigation to get in contact with us.”
