A substantial reward has been offered in connection with an appeal for information to help trace a man wanted for a series of armed robberies across the midlands, the south-east and Northamptonshire and Hertfordshire.
The Association of British Bookmakers has offered the reward of up to £10,000 for any information which will lead to the successful arrest and prosecution of the offender, payable upon conviction.
Last week, detectives released CCTV images of the man wanted in connection with a series of armed robberies at bookmakers across Northamptonshire, Hertfordshire, West Sussex and Leicestershire.
Officers have connected at least eight offences between February and March this year.
The following offences are believed to have been committed by the same man:
In each of these offences the offender has been described as black, between 5ft 5ins and 6ft tall, possibly in his late 30s early 40s, wearing a black hooded top in seven of the eight offences and a grey hooded top in one of the offences. He has also been seen wearing a black hat with a scarf covering his face and white trainers.
Detective Inspector Mark Pattison, from Northamptonshire Police, who are leading the investigation, told Heart: "This reward has been offered to help encourage anyone who may have any information about this man to come forward. We would urge him, or anyone who recognises him, to contact Northamptonshire Police on 101 and quote Operation Needle.
Thankfully, no-one was hurt in any of these incidents, however they have been extremely traumatic for the cashiers and the businesses have lost money.
We are working closely with the other forces where we believe the offences have been committed by the same man and are confident that someone has information that can help."
Witnesses to this incident, or anyone with information, should call Northamptonshire Police on 101 - alternatively, information can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
