CCTV images released after armed robberies

Detectives in Northamptonshire have released CCTV images of a man they wish to trace in connection with a series of armed robberies at bookmakers across Northamptonshire, Hertfordshire, West Sussex and Leicestershire.

Officers have connected at least eight offences between February and March this year. In each case, the offender has been described as black, between 5ft 5ins and 6ft tall, possibly in his late 30s early 40s, wearing a black or grey hoodie. He has also been seen wearing a black hat with a scarf covering his face and white trainers.**

We have released images of a man who we are keen to locate in relation to this series of armed robberies. We would urge him to make contact with us and for anyone with any information to contact Northamptonshire Police on 101 and quote Operation Needle. Thankfully, no-one was hurt in any of these incidents, however they have been extremely traumatic for the cashiers and the businesses have lost money.
