Garage Robbery CCTV Pictures Released

CCTV images have been released of a man suspected of holding up a garage at gunpoint.

Police are appealing for any information on the incident which took place at about 10pm on Sunday January 18 in a BP petrol station at the Leith end of Ferry Road in Edinburgh.

The thief was carrying a gun and threatened the lone member of staff in the station before making off with £300 in cash.

The worker was not injured but left shaken, police said.

He is white, aged between 35 and 45, with a slim build and a ginger, greying goatee beard.

He was wearing a black hooded top, blue jeans, a brown three-quarter-length jacket and ankle boots. He was also carrying a brown leather bag.

Detective Constable Mark Seymour said: "We are keen to speak to this man. Despite extensive enquiries to find him, we have still to identify him.

"I am sure that someone knows who he is and I would ask them to come forward to assist us. Similarly, I would appeal to the male himself to get in touch with us.''

Anyone with information can contact Police Scotland on 101 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
