Police in Farnborough have issued a renewed for witnesses following a raid on a bookies in Cove in March.

Hampshire Constabulary has this week released CCTV images of a man they would like to speak to in connection with a robbery at Coral bookmakers in Cove Road on March 27.

The incident occurred shortly after 12.30pm when a man burst into the store and demanded money from staff, making off with some £400 in cash. No-one was injured during the incident.

The suspect is described as a white man in his 20s of slim build, 5ft 9in to 6ft tall with stubble on his face. Investigating officer Detective Constable James Massey called on anyone who witnessed the attack to come forward.

A 32-year-old man from Farnborough, who was arrested on suspicion of robbery the day after the raid and then released on bail, will not face charges.

Anyone with information is asked to call Hampshire Constabulary on 101 or call Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
