Tolworth bank job

Armed robbery at Broadway Lloyds

Witnesses say three men pulled up in a grey Peugeot alongside the security guard outside the Lloyds Bank. A man jumped out of the back passenger door, brandishing what police say was a knife, and forcing the guard to hand over a cashbox.

The three then sped off down Tolworth Broadway before turning in to Princes Lane then Oakleigh Avenue. A nearby resident spotted the three white men wearing balaclavas smashing the cashbox with a large sledge hammer.

Anyone with information should phone Tolworth detectives on 020 7247 7932 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Even in a balaclava he looks ugly

he wouldn't be a very good robber if he let people take his picture, now, would he?

It's actually a woman. No relation to the crime, purely for illustration.

Sounds like a bungled attempt to me. Surely isn't it common knowledge that cash boxes deface the contents if they're forced open?

I expect they'll be caught soon. I doubt they came from around here.

"I doubt they came from around here" !!!!!!!

Tolworth! I bet they're locals
