Investigation continues into Laxfield shop robbery
Police have today renewed their appeal for witnesses following a robbery at a village store in north Suffolk.
Police were called just after 6.15am yesterday to a report that two men had pulled up outside the shop/post office in High Street, Laxfield in a vehicle.
They entered the shop and threatened a staff member with, what is believed to be, a pair of scissors.
The men demanded to know where the safe was and, after entering an office, took money from a safe.
The men made off with a quantity of cash, leaving in a black VW Golf in the direction of Stradbroke.

The men are described as white, of stocky build with very short hair.

The car is understood to have been stolen from Northampton.
Police officers are keen to speak to anyone who was close to the post office in Bickers Hill Road – where the number plates were stolen – or where the car was abandoned in Rushbrook.
