CCTV released following three armed robberies

Police investigating three armed robberies in Southampton and the New Forest have released CCTV of a man they would like to speak to.


The first robbery took place at Bargain Booze, in Millbrook Road East, Southampton, on January 14, at around 9.45pm. A man entered the store with a knife, grabbed the cashier and demanded money from the till. He took £140 from the till and left. The cashier was uninjured.


The second took place at Mason’s in Main Road, Totton, on January 25, just before 8.30pm.

The third robbery happened at the Co-op in Oak Tree Parade, Bransgore, on January 28, just after 9pm.


During both of these incidents a man entered with a knife and stole a quantity of cigarettes, alcohol and money from the tills.


Detective Sergeant Dal Andrews said: “We have been carrying out various enquiries into these three robberies and believe that they are all linked. Fortunately no one has been injured as a result of these incidents but staff have been left understandably shaken by what has happened.

“I would like to remind those working in local convenience stores to remain vigilant, especially around closing time, and please do not hesitate to call us if you see anyone suspicious hanging around.


“We are particularly keen to speak to the man seen in the CCTV image as we believe he may have information that could prove vital to this investigation.


“If you think you know who this man is, or if you see anyone acting suspiciously outside your local shop, please get in touch.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101, quoting 44180017880, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.


A 37-year-old man from Southampton has been arrested on suspicion of robbery. He has been released from custody but remains under investigation
