Two men are wanted for questioning after an armed robber wielding a knife held up a Murray Road service station in Preston on October 23. CCTV vision shows the armed robber escaped with cash and cigarettes around 9:15 PM and appears to have been with another male before entering the service station.
Investigations are still underway, and police are asking the public for information to assist their investigation.
Meanwhile, a staff member at a Mobil service station in Hamilton escaped injury recently after thieves smashed their way inside. Police will obtain CCTV footage of the incident which left the staff member hiding in the back room of the Mobil service station for safety at 2.10 AM. The offenders ripped out the till and cigarette cabinet before driving away.
