Armed Robbery At Bedworth Bookies

Police are seeking drinkers in a Bedworth pub who may have seen two men before they robbed a bookmakers shop at gunpoint.

The pair got away with an unknown amount of cash from the First UK Racing Shop in Bulkington Road on Saturday teatime.

Insp Colin Reynolds of Warwickshire police said:

"The two males entered the premises and were seen to be playing with the gaming machines.

"One of the offenders then produced a handgun, described as a revolver and dark in colour, threatening the cashiers and demanding money.

"An unknown amount of money was put in a blue and white striped carrier bag, and the men left on foot towards New Street."

The two men are described as white and aged 18 to 20.

One was said to be of medium build, 5ft 7in, clean shaven, wearing a dark blue track suit with white stripes and a dark blue Oasis hat.

The other was of slim to medium build, 5ft 6in, with dark collar-length straight hair and a navy blue fleece jacket.

Police are particularly interested to hear from anyone who was in the nearby Travellers Rest pub, where the two man may have been prior to the robbery which took place at about 5.35pm.

Anyone with information should call 01926 415000.
