Armed robbery outside bank

Police in Glasgow are appealing for information following an armed robbery outside a bank on Smithycroft Road in the Riddrie area of the city.

The incident was reported around 11.15am on Tuesday (17 December).

A man, wearing dark clothing, presented a weapon at staff before stealing a five figure sum of cash which was being delivered to the bank.

He left in a dark coloured vehicle. Nobody was injured during the incident.

Officers investigating the incident are now appealing for any witnesses who may be able to help inquiries to come forward.

Detective Inspector Clark Hill said: “While no one was injured, this was a frightening experience for all of the staff working at the bank and the surrounding premises.

“We would urge anyone who was in the area around Smithycroft Road and Lethamhill Road this morning to let us know if you think you may have seen anything which could help our investigation.

“I would also ask anyone who was driving in the area and may have dashcam footage to check this and pass on anything of note.

“You can pass information to police by calling 101, quoting incident 1158 of 17 December, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
