Police seek public help in robbery case
WARWICK Police are calling on the public to help identify the suspects responsible for the theft of a cash box at the Farmers Market fruit store in King Street earlier this year.
Police say during the offence, two men entered the store and attempted to distract staff by engaging in conversation about items of produce.
While staff were talking with one of the men, the other took the cash box containing a sum of money from the counter.
Both men then ran from the store and were chased by staff.
The men were seen getting into a white sedan parked in King Street before driving off. The vehicle was last seen travelling east on King Street.
The incident occurred about 1.15pm on Wednesday, April 1.
Police say witnesses describe one of the suspects as an 18 to 25-year-old male with light-coloured skin, about 170-180cm tall, of slim build, with fine features, clear skin and dark brown hair, pulled back in a ponytail down to just below the shoulders with no fringe.
Police have released a comfit image in the hope that members of the public might be able to identify the suspect.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Warwick Criminal Investigation Branch on 4660 4444 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
