Police release e-fit description of Burnham-On-Sea Tesco robbery suspect

Police in Burnham-on-Sea have released an e-fit description and further details about an armed robbery at the town's Tesco store earlier this week.

An e-fit image of the suspect involved in the Tesco robbery on October 11, 2005The robbery took place at the Love Lane store at 5.54pm on Tuesday October 11th, when a Securicor guard was delivering cash to ATM machines.

He was attacked by a gang of four masked men, who were travelling in a black Seat Alhambra MPV vehicle, which was later found burned out by the side of the B3140 Brent Road, near Burnham. The security guard required minor treatment for an arm injury at Musgrove Park Hospital.

Police say that they believe the Seat MPV may have been in the area earlier that day and after the incident followed a route along Love Lane, Stoddens Road, Berrow Road, before turning into Brent Road.

They believe the men then might have made their escape in a second vehicle, which may have been parked or driven to the Brent Road area.

Police believe that the occupants of the Seat MPV had northern accents and may have been staying locally at a campsite or at a local guesthouse.

They have described one of the suspects as a white man wearing a baseball cap with a blue scarf pulled over his face. He was wearing a black bomber-style jacket, blue jeans and training shoes.

They have also issued an e-fit of one of the four men who they believe may have been in the area before the robbery took place.

Taunton CID would like to speak to anyone who may recognise the man, witnessed the raid or may have any information, which could help police enquiries.

They can be contacted on 0845 4567000 or alternatively you can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111. You do not have to give your name and could qualify for a reward.
