A large amount of money has been stolen from a cash-in-transit van today (Monday).

Police were called to Tesco in The Forum, Stevenage, at 1.25pm. A man had approached the driver of a cash-in-transit van and stole a substantial amount of money. The driver was not injured.

Three men were involved in the incident and left the area using a white Volkswagen Transporter van heading in the direction of Stevenage Old Town.

Detective sergeant Phoebe Butfoy is investigating and said: “Anyone who saw the incident or the van, prior to or after the incident, should contact me immediately.

“It is believed the van used by the men involved was travelling at some speed, so it is possible it may have had near misses with passing vehicles. I would urge these motorists to contact me straight away, as they may have information vital to the investigation.”
