Police have released an artist’s impression of a getaway driver involved in a robbery in Penwtyn.
Officers released the image as part of their investigation into a robbery near the Waitrose store on the Avenue Industrial Park in Penwtyn at 11.40am on Tuesday June 12, when security drivers where assaulted by four unknown men as they replenished the cash machine.
The four men, who are described as having Liverpool-type accents, stole five cash cassettes containing a substantial amount of money and made off in a white Transit van.
The van was found in nearby Hollybush Heights, and has been forensically examined along with items that were found inside, including a Silver Cross ‘Pop’ Pushchair.
The driver is described as being over the age of 40, with olive skin, and a mole on the right side of his face near his cheek bone. Two of the other suspects were wearing orange fluorescent clothing.
South Wales Police said its officers are liaising with Merseyside Police and Cheshire Police as it is known the white Transit van was stolen from an industrial estate in Chester on May 17. It was also involved in a ram raid on the same industrial estate the following day, when a boiler worth £1,000 was stolen.
The suspects may have connections to Cheshire, Merseyside, or North Wales.
Anyone with information should contact Rumney CID on 02920 774233 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
