Constable Jo Sheedy said: “When a cash box has been forced open, this activates a dye and makes the cash worthless. We believe that there is a group of criminals who are trying to ‘clean up’ this cash by passing it through gaming machines in bookmakers in the Liverpool area." “We are keen to speak to these two individuals pictured as we believe they may have vital information that could help us with our enquiries, or urge anyone who thinks they may know who they are, to please contact police.”

Detectives in Liverpool have released a picture of a blue Ford Focus which was used in a cash-in-transit robbery in the city.

The stolen car was used in the robbery on Monday morning outside the Toby Carvery pub on Queens Drive, when a man ran at a security guard and took the cash box he was carrying before getting into the car and driving off towards Walton.

The offender was seen running off towards the Bolan Street and Green Lane area of Stoneycroft at around 10.15 am and is described as being approximately 5 foot 8 inches tall and of slim build, wearing a balaclava and a blue Berghaus style jacket.

The car had earlier been stolen from a Tesco Superstore last Thursday.

Detective Sergeant Steve Lundon from Merseyside Police’s Matrix Serious Crime Unit said:

“This car will have been parked up somewhere since last Thursday evening."

“The vehicle registration begins with WD64. However, we believe it may have been on false plates during this period. I would like to appeal to anyone who thinks they may have seen it, or seen any suspicious activity to please contact the police.”
