Armed Robbery - Chippenham

Posted: 05/01/2007 17:45:04

Shortly after 1400 hours on Friday 29th December 2006, an armed robbery occurred at Timpsons Shoe Repair shop, Emery Gate Chippenham.

The offender entered the shop, pointed a handgun at the lone, male member of staff, and demanded that cash from the till be handed over. Approximately £200 in mixed denomination notes was stolen, and the offender made off in the general direction of the Chippenham town bridge. Whilst shaken, the member of staff was otherwise uninjured.

The offender is described as follows:- male, white, aged late 30’s, stocky build, 5’8” tall, clean shaven, chubby face. What little hair he had, was described as fair, cut to a “grade 1” to the sides and back, but he was bald on the top of his head. He was wearing a mid-length black leather jacket over a beige, round neck T-shirt, and black jeans, and is believed to have been wearing a chunky silver coloured wrist bracelet on his right wrist. His accent was described as “local”. The weapon is described as a silver coloured hand pistol, which may have had a unique gold coloured band within its barrel.

Anyone with any information as to the identity of the offender is asked to contact the Wiltshire Police on 0845 408 7000, or alternatively, anonymous information may be left by ringing Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. The officer dealing with this offence is Detective Constable Jason Roberts, at Chippenham CID.
