(PRWEB UK) 27 December 2013
According to an article published in the Ulster Herald on the 19th of December, 2013, Police have decided to step up the amount of police patrolling around local business premises in the lead up to Christmas following the latest in a series of armed robberies in the area.
Shop assistants of a local business were left in shock following an incident involving an alleged armed robbery. The man suspected of armed robbery was allegedly armed with a metal bar, and took off after grabbing a handful of notes. It is believed he only took a very small amount of money.
The police believe that the robbery is connected with a series of recent attacks and thefts in the area and are keen to identify and prevent further attacks from occurring.
High quality CCTV security systems in the latest attack have allegedly caught a very good image of the offender and police believe that they have a very good chance of locating the offender and making an arrest. Police are still hoping to attain further information and are appealing for any further information regarding the crime from witnesses.
Police are increasing patrols in the area as a result of recent crime levels.
A spokesperson from leaders and specialists in monitored alarm systems and commercial security, AlertSystems, have commented on the investigation by saying ‘ unfortunately, thefts and armed robberies can be an issue for many businesses and CCTV cameras can be a valuable source of information for store owners and police if an attack occurs.
