Appeal launched After Burscough Post Office Robbery
March 26, 2016, 1:49 pm
Around 5.30pm on Thursday (March 24), three men approached the Post Office on Liverpool Road North.
The men smashed their way into the building as three staff stood behind the counter.
Once inside, the group forced staff to hand over cash after threatening the workers with a shotgun.
The raiders fled the scene in a silver Honda civic car, later found on fire in Wheat Lane. It is thought the men then left the area in another vehicle.
All the men were wearing dark clothing and balaclavas.
Police would like to speak to several people who they believe recorded the incident on mobile phones.
Anyone with information or a recording of the incident can contact police on 101 quoting crime reference SB1601139.
Alternatively they can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at Crimestoppers-uk.org.
