Bank Robbed In Chipping Campden

Police are appealing to the public for help in tracing a man who robbed a bank in Chipping Campden during the afternoon of Friday November 17.

The man entered the Lloyds TSB bank in the High Street, Chipping Campden, between 12.45pm and 1pm and handed the cashier a note demanding money and stating that he had a bomb.

A quantity of cash, thought to be in the region of £750, was handed to the offender who then left the bank.

The male is described as white, in his 20s, with a slim build and short, dark, spiky hair.

He was clean-shaven and was wearing wraparound sunglasses and a cream coloured jumper, possibly a roll neck, which was pulled up to cover his chin.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Gloucestershire police on 0845 090 1234, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, quoting incident number 233 of November 17.
