A MASKED robber armed with a crowbar stole £4000 from a North Camp store on Sunday morning.

He struck at just before 7am as the Alldays shop was being opened by a male employee.

The thug, who had a scarf covering his face, threatened the terrified 20-year-old assistant before snatching the money from the office.

According to police the assistant was extremely shocked but otherwise unhurt.

The robber, who was 5ft 11in tall, was wearing a hooded top, dark jeans and trainers.

WDC Tara McGovern, of Aldershot CID, has appealed for information from anyone who saw the thug fleeing along Queens Road or adjoining roads.

"It's possible there may have been some early morning dog walkers about at the time," she said.

Witnesses should call WDC McGovern on 0845 045 45 45.
