Can you help trace getaway car used in Ringwood robbery?
POLICE are appealing for help in finding out which car was used by robbers during a getaway.
The two robbers are believed to have switched to a car from the moped they used after grabbing cash from a security guard outside Lloyds Bank in Ringwood on Friday, February 1.
Detective Constable Naomi Mellish, of Hampshire police, said: “We need to speak to every witness to the robbery itself and the transfer from the moped to another vehicle.
“The switch of transport might not have seemed important to a witness at the time.
“But information about that change of vehicle is vital to our enquiries.”
The moped was distinctive in that it was black with a full windscreen and a rear top box with the two men dressed in dark clothing.
The moped was driven the wrong way up a one-way street after leaving High Street.
Anyone with information is asked to contact operation helicon at Lyndhurst CID on 101. or the anonymous Crimestoppers charity line on 0800 555 111 DC Mellish added: “This is a bold attack during daylight hours on the High Street of a busy market town. The men who carried out this robbery had no regard for the safety of anyone around them, and they need to be stopped,” she said.
