Robbers Drop Cash

John Smithies
Police have released CCTV footage after two hapless robbers dropped stolen cash in Droylsden. Shortly before 1pm on Saturday 17 March 2018, two men went into a travel agents on Queens Walk. They demanded money from members of staff inside, asking them to open the safe and secure doors. The duo then stuffed cash from the till down their trousers, before fleeing from the shop. As they were running down Craven Street, notes started dropping out of their trousers, which caught in the wind. After trying to pick up some of the escaped notes they’d stolen, the men then got into a silver car which sped off towards Fairfield Road. Detective Constable Phil Scargill of GMP’s Tameside borough, said: “This duo threatened innocent people working in the travel agents and should know their actions are utterly unacceptable. “They took every step to secure the money in the shop, but left the stolen notes in their wake as they fled from the scene. “I’d urge anyone who saw the two men, or caught sight of them dropping notes as they ran from the travel agents, to please get in touch with police and share what you know.” Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 0161 856 9262, quoting incident number 1122 of 17/03/18. Reports can also be made anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
