Police tracking "audacious" Stokenchurch bank robbers

Bucks Free Press: Police tracking "audacious" bank robbers Police tracking "audacious" bank robbers

POLICE hunting a pair of “audacious” bank robbers have released further details about this week’s Stokenchurch raid.

Two men entered the Lloyds Bank brach in Church Path on Monday at around 9.10am, pushing the staff into the building and demanding the safe to be opened.

They assaulted two female staff members and removed all the cash from the safe.

After unsuccessfully trying to add to their haul from the ATM, the robbers fled in separate vehicles.

Police have not confirmed how much cash the men got away with.

Investigating officer Det Con Matt Kent said: “This was an audacious attack, carried out in broad daylight which left members of staff severely shaken.

“We would urge anyone who was near the bank in Stokenchurch at that time and may have seen something to do with this incident to please contact us.”

The suspects are described as black, aged 25 to 40 years old, about 6ft, with broad, athletic builds.

They were dressed in dark clothing, one carrying a black bag, one carrying a red postal style bag.

However, no description of the getaway cars is available.

If you have any information please contact Det Con Kent via the Thames Valley Police Enquiry Centre on 101.

If you don't want to speak directly to the police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at www.crimestoppers-uk.org.

Oh well, stop and search is out of the question as the human rights brigade would jump up and down on this one even though the police would only be following up with the descriptions given!

Prat. How would stop and search help here? Do you really think every black male aged between 25 and 40 of athletic build should be stopped and searched?

And then you would moan that there are no police patrolling the streets.

This would be due to the hundreds of searches taking place. I'm also sure police have descriptions of many uncaptured criminals whether white or Asian etc, I guess there would have to be searches of all matches there too...

What an idiot.
