POLICE have released a CCTV image of a man they would like to trace following a robbery at a Suffolk petrol station.

At around 9.55pm on June 27 a raider entered the Jet garage on Manor Road, Haverhill, and told staff he had a gun, showing them a gun-shaped object through a carrier bag. He was given a quantity of cash and fled.

The offender is described as a white male, in his late 20s or early 30s, with short hair and stubble. He was wearing a grey baseball cap, jeans and a black jacket.

DS Stuart Jeans said: “This appears to be an isolated incident which was very frightening for the staff involved, who were left shaken but unhurt. I would like to hear from anyone who was in the petrol station or nearby around the time of the robbery, including a man seen walking his dog who tied it up outside before entering the shop and then leaving again across the forecourt a short time later.

“I also want to hear from anyone who recognises the man in the CCTV image, or the man himself, as they all could hold important information about this crime.”
