APPEAL AFTER Tarleton NATWEST ROBBERY
Source: Lancashire Constabulary

DETECTIVES are appealing for information following a robbery at a bank in Tarleton.

At around 3pm on Thursday 23 October, a man entered Natwest on Church Road and demanded money from cashiers. A quantity of cash was handed over before the man left the bank and made off in a small dark red hatchback car which is thought to have been waiting for him outside.

Officers believe there were at least two offenders involved in the incident.

The offender who entered the bank is described as a white man aged in his thirties, quite tall with a stocky build and spoke with a Liverpool accent. At the time he was wearing a grey baseball cap with a flat peak, a dark blue hoody with the hood pulled over his cap, a fluorescent yellow high visibility vest which had a hole cut out of the back, dark Adidas tracksuit bottoms with white stripes down the side and dark trainers.

Detective Sergeant Peter Reil of South CID said: “The cashiers have understandably been affected by what must have been a terrifying incident for them.  Enquiries are underway and we have had a really good response from local businesses and residents so far and I would like to thank them for their help."

“We have a team of detectives investigating this incident supported by local neighbourhood police officers and I would like to reassure people that this type of offence is rare in this area.”

Anybody with any information can contact police on 101 quoting crime number SC1400487.

Alternatively they can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or on-line at Crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.

Controversial plans to build 275 homes at the Alty’s site in Hesketh Bank were unanimously passed by planning committee members last week.

Councillors were due to grant the outline planning application last month, but decided to defer their decision until this month.

The application has been amended since it was first submitted, from a hybrid application which included details of the residential development, to a wholly outline application.
