He got away with a brown leather satchel containing cash, two phones and tobacco.

An investigation has been launched after a Essex firefighter reportedly wrapped two children in cling film.
The incident, which involved the children of a crew member, happened at a fire station in Southend.
Their mother, who posted photos on Facebook, said it was intended as a joke, but she accepted "we should not have played around like this at the fire station".
The service said the watch had been put on "core duties only", meaning it cannot carry out community work.
A spokesman for Essex County Fire and Rescue Service said: "We believe that no harm was caused to the children, and that the parents were present throughout the event.
"The firefighters involved are embarrassed and regretful of how this event has been interpreted."
