Police in Glasgow are investigating after a "reckless and dangerous'' armed robbery at a wholesalers.

Officer said three men brandishing what appeared to be a firearm entered United Wholesale on Easter Queenslie Road at 3.15pm on Monday.

They made off with a quantity of cash after threatening staff members. No-one was hurt in the incident, police said.

A fourth man was waiting outside in a silver Mercedes C Class saloon car, which the three men got into before making off.

The vehicle drove north along Bartiebeith Road and was last seen on Blairtummock Road heading towards Stepps Road.

Detective Inspector Alasdair Barlow, from the community investigation unit based at Govan, said: ``This was a reckless and dangerous crime which terrified staff and members of the public who were within the wholesalers at the time.

"Luckily, nobody was hurt but it is absolutely imperative that we trace the perpetrators as soon as possible.

"We know that prior to the suspects entering the car, they threw a black holdall containing the stolen cash into the boot.

"When they closed the boot, the handle of the bag was left sticking out and would have been visible to other motorists driving behind the vehicle.

"I would like to speak to anyone who was driving in the surrounding area yesterday afternoon, who may have noticed a silver Mercedes C Class with a bag strap sticking out of the boot.

"Officers are working to further establish the movements of the vehicle in the aftermath of the robbery and your information could prove vital to our investigation.''

Anyone with information has been asked to contact the community investigation unit at Govan on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
