12 Jul 2016

One stood guard by the door while the other two, one brandishing a weapon, went into the shop and forced staff into the rear of the shop.

They forced entry to the Bureau de Change and threatened a member of staff with a knife. They stole cash from the safe and left the shop getting into a pale metallic blue Lexus RX400 that was waiting on the street. The vehicle was later found abandoned outside The Croft on Moor Lane in Bramhall.

The three offenders all wore dark clothing and had their faces covered with their hoods up. Police are appealing for information and witnesses.

Detective Inspector Julia Bowden said:

“While no one was hurt, the staff members in the shop were left very shaken by the incident. “We are urging anyone with information to contact us. It may be you were in the area at the time of the offence and saw the offenders before or after the robbery, or you may have captured the pale blue Lexus in the area on dash cam footage”

If you have any information, however insignificant you may feel it is, please get in touch.

Anyone with information should call police on 0161 856 9770, 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
