�10k reward in Stevenage bookie robbery case

A �10,000 reward is being offered for information relating to a bookmaker robbery.

Crimestoppers and The Association of British Bookmakers have put up the money to help catch those responsible for the robbery of Ladbrokes in Stevenage High Street on April 10. At around 9.25pm a man entered the shop and threatened staff with a knife before making off with cash.

He is described as Asian, in his 20s, 5ft 5ins tall and of a skinny build. He was wearing a grey hooded top and similar coloured trousers. His face was partially covered.

Crimestoppers and Ladbrokes urged anyone with any information about the robbery or anyone who recognises the individual in these CCTV images to call the charity anonymously on 0800 555111.

Ann Scott, Crimestoppers regional manager, said: “We never ask for your name or take any personal details. We don’t trace or record calls and callers are not asked to go to court or give a statement to police. In the 24 years that we have been running we have never revealed anyone’s identity. We don’t want to know who you are, just what you know.”
