Ipswich: Reward Offered After Robbery
A £3000 reward is being offered after an armed robbery at a Spar shop on Freehold Road in Ipswich.
A reward's being offered for information about a robbery at a shop where the staff were tied up and gagged at the shop a week ago.
Six men went in wearing balaclavas and armed with knives and other weapons just before 9 at night.
They took cash, alcohol and scratch cards and ran off towards Bloomfield Street.
The male and female members of staff were left extremely shaken by the attack, though not physically hurt.
Crimestoppers is offering the reward of up to £3,000 in the hope that it will prompt someone to come forward with information relating to the identity of those responsible for this robbery.
Crimestoppers Eastern Regional Manager, Ann Scott, said: “This serious crime has caused much concern and fear amongst local residents, fellow shop owners and staff in the community. It is a particularly unusual occurrence in the safe town of Ipswich, which rarely falls victim to armed robberies”.
She continued “No one has anything to fear by contacting the charity Crimestoppers as you will remain 100% anonymous. We never ask for your name and no personal information is taken. Calls are not traced or recorded and those giving information do not have to give a statement to the Police or go to court. In the 23 years that we have been running Crimestoppers has never revealed anyone’s identity”.
Ann added “We want any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem. Did you witness any suspicious activity that evening or perhaps someone has confessed to being involved?”
The reward of up to £3,000 is offered to anyone who provides information through the Crimestoppers 0800 555 111 number that leads to the arrest and conviction of the people responsible for this crime. Information given through the secure form atwww.crimestoppers-uk.org or directly to the police will not qualify.
