Gang armed with crowbars strike at supermarket near Lichfield

Armed robbers have taken cash and cigarettes from a supermarket near Lichfield.

The raiders struck at the Co-op on Main Street in Alrewas just after 9.30pm last night (January 22).

Three men – one carrying two crowbars – entered the open store through the front doors, threatened two members of staff and demanded cash.

They took cash from a back office and a cigarettes from behind the shop counter before fleeing into the rear car park. Police believe they then drove off in a small white car.

The man with the crowbars wore a blue hooded top with a white balaclava, while the other two also wore hooded tops with scarves or facial coverings.

Anyone with information on the incident, or who saw suspicious persons/vehicles in the Alrewas area last night, is asked to contact DC Graham Tomlinson at Staffordshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 689 of January 22, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
