“I’d like to prevail on local residents once again to check to see if any of these items have been discarded in their bins or gardens as the robbers made their way from the bookmakers shop on Friday and Wednesday, April 7 and 12.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 or via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
