Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

We've released further CCTV images of a male we are trying to identify in relation to a recent robbery at a bookmakers in Devizes.

On Thursday 16 July at approximately 9.20pm, an unknown male wearing a hoodie and mask walked in to the Megabet shop in The Brittox and demanded money while threatening the male member of staff with what was believed to have been a weapon wrapped in a bag. 

An amount of money was handed over to the male before he made off. 

Please see CCTV images here of a male on a bike we would like to speak to in relation to this incident. 

Det Sgt Robert Blake, who is leading the investigation, said:  "A male on a bike was seen riding on the High Street and into the Brittox before entering the bookmakers and committing an armed robbery.
"He left via the same route out of the town centre. 
"If you recognise this person or remember seeing him riding in or around the town before or after this incident please contact us." 

If you can help, please call us on 101 quoting crime reference number 54200070073. Alternatively, you can report anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
