Police hunt lone offender after armed robbery at Bowdon Co-op

By David Prior at

Police are hunting a lone offender after an armed robbery at the Co-op in Bowdon yesterday.

Officers were called to the Vicarage Lane store at 7.10 on Sunday morning.

They found that one male offender had entered the store, threatened a staff member and taken a sum of money.

He fled on foot before police arrived.

It’s not yet known in what way the offender was armed.

A police helicopter and a dog unit led the search for the offender but he is still outstanding.

We’ll hope to have more details on this incident later.
