Armed robbers storm shop in Grays

First published in News

ARMED robbers stormed a money-lender and made off with jewellery and cash.

Two men burst into The Money Shop, in High Street, Grays, at 6.15pm on Thursday and threatened staff with a handgun.

Their loot is estimated to be worth a five-figure sum.

Det Insp Danny Stoten, of the South Ockendon serious crime team, said: “Grays High Street would have still been quite busy at this time with passers-by.

“We need to speak to anyone that saw these suspects before or after the incident.”

The first man was described as black, in his early 20s, about 5ft 8in, of a slim build and wearing black motorcycle gear.

The second man was described as white, about 5ft 8in tall, of a medium build, wearing dark-coloured trousers, a black zip-up top, a black baseball cap and was carrying a blue-and-red rucksack.

Anyone with information should call 0300 333 4444.

Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

WHY are these people only SO brave when armed? If they are SO brave to rob somebody, WHY have to rely on weapons to do so???????

Come to that, why NOT try doing an honest days work, instead of robbing those who Do???
