POLICE in Cardiff investigating a robbery have released an artist’s impression of the getaway driver of a van previously used in a Chester ram raid.
It is believed the suspects, who committed a robbery near a Cardiff Waitrose store, may have connections to Cheshire, Merseyside or North Wales.
Detectives are continuing to investigate the incident which occurred on the Avenue Industrial Park in Pentwyn, Cardiff, at 11.40am on Tuesday, June 12.
Security van drivers were replenishing the cash machines when they were assaulted by four unknown men who stole five cash cassettes containing a substantial amount of money.
The men, who are described as having Liverpool-type accents, made off in a white Transit van.
South Wales Police is liaising with colleagues from Merseyside Police and Cheshire Constabulary as the white Transit van was stolen from the Sealand Road industrial estate on May 17 and involved in a ram raid there the following day. A boiler worth £1,000 was stolen.
The van has been recovered and forensically examined along with a number of other items inside the van including a Silver Cross ‘Pop’ Pushchair.
The driver is described as being more than 40, with olive skin and with a mole on the right side of his face, near his cheekbone.
Two of the suspects were wearing orange fluorescent clothing.
Anyone with information should call Rumney CID on 02920 774233 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
