Further appeal following cash in transit robbery in Ormskirk

POLICE have released images of two men they want to speak to in connection with a cash in transit robbery in July.

The incident happened at around 2pm on Wednesday 30 July. It is believed that two men in balaclavas approached a security guard carrying a cash box outside Morrisons on Park Road, Ormskirk.

They told the security guard to drop the box and made off with the container, thought to have approximately £40,000 inside.

It is believed that the two men then made off in a Black BMW convertible which was waiting for them on Aughton Street. The black box was later found smashed on Black Moss Lane.

Officers have released images of two men they would like to speak to in connection with their enquiries. The men are thought to be from the Liverpool area and may have connections to Blackpool.

DC Andy Doran of Skelmersdale CID said: “I am appealing to the public to take a good look at the images and pass on any information that could help us to identify the two men as they may have key information about the incident.

“I am also appealing to the men pictured directly and would advise them to contact us at their earliest opportunity.”

Anyone with information should contact Skelmersdale CID on 01695 566177 quoting log number 0700 of 30th July.

Alternatively, they can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at Crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
