Police are releasing CCTV images as part of an investigation into a robbery at a petrol station in South Mimms.

South Mimms Pole Attack 2


The incident occurred at Murco on St Albans Road on Monday, December 29 at around 9pm when three offenders, who had their faces covered, went into the shop. Two of them threatened a cashier with poles forcing the member of staff to open the till. 

These two offenders managed to take money from the till whilst the third took money from a staff only area.


The member of staff, a 48 year old man, was not injured during the incident and there were no customers in the store.
The three then ran out of the back of the building down an alleyway into Brookside and then Hepburn Court. We are aware that the three may then have got lost in the housing estate for a short time before making off in a vehicle.
