Dash-cam drivers could be key to snaring robbers
Drivers with dash cams could hold the key in catching the culprits responsible for an armed robbery in Strathaven.
Two masked men made off with a five-figure sum of cash after holding up the Green Street post office with a firearm shortly after 8am on Monday, August 28.
A manhunt was launched after the suspects fled from the Day-Today convenience store on foot.
Officers are now appealing for motorists who were in the area at the time of the robbery and who may have recorded vital footage on a dashboard camera to come forward.
A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: “Enquiries are continuing into this robbery.
“Officers are appealing for anyone with dash cam footage who was in the Green Street area between 8am and 8.30am on Monday, August 28 to contact Cambuslang Police Office through 101 quoting reference number 0728 of 28th August.”
A lone shopkeeper was uninjured but left badly shaken after being threatened by the assailants who were wearing balaclavas.
The area around the shop was sealed off throughout the day as the armed response unit was called in to investigate the scene.
The first suspect is described as 5ft 10in to 5ft 11in tall, of stocky build and was wearing blue jeans and black boots.
The second suspect is thought to be 5ft 7in to 5ft 8in tall, of slim build and was wearing a black cap with an‘NY’logo on it and a jacket with a white zip.
