9:00pm Friday 28th September 2012 in News
Dyfed Powys Police is investigating a robbery at Thomson travel agents, Riverside Quay, Haverfordwest today (Friday) at approximately 16:15.
A man entered the premises, made threats to members of staff and the public in the premises and demanded money.
He then walked away with a substantial amount of money, including foreign currency.
No one was injured during the incident. The man is described as being in his late 20’s to 30’s, had short dark cropped hair, cropped stubble on his face, between 5’6” and 5’8” tall, of stocky build, and was wearing a light blue top, light blue jeans and white trainers and possibly had a dark coloured jacket.
He had a Welsh accent, and was carrying a plastic carrier bag. He may also have a black sports type ‘holdall’ with a shoulder strap.
When he left Thomson he turned left out of the premises. It is believed the man got into a taxi near the café by the bus station in Haverfordwest, but was dropped off on the outskirts of Haverfordwest in Bethany Row on the main A40 near the Toyota garage.
A police spokesman said: "We are appealing for any sightings of a man matching this description to be reported to police urgently on 101. Do not approach him. Anyone who witnessed the incident or anything suspicious before or after this time in the area is also asked to contact police on 101."
