A SCRUFFY thief who pedalled away with £20 from the till at Alldays at lunchtime on Monday is being hunted by detectives.

The man walked into the store in Queen's Road, North Camp, and brandished " something black" at staff until they handed the cash over. He then escaped on a red mountain bike.

He in his late 30s or early 40s and wore a grey "beanie" hat, a dark fleece and light trousers. He is between 5ft 10 ins and six feet tall. If anyone saw him on the cycle they should ring DC Graham Aggar on 01256 405088.
