Officers investigating a robbery in Rochdale have released CCTV images.

Shortly after 12.10am on Monday, October 29, 2018, three men wearing balaclavas used a brick and a crow bar to force their way in to Tesco on Silk Street.

While one of the men stood watch outside, the other two men entered the shop and stole a quantity of cigarettes.

All three of the offenders then got into a car outside the shop and left the scene.

Detective Constable Steven Farnell, of GMP’s Rochdale Borough, said: “We have been following up numerous lines of enquiry in the last couple of months, and we are now appealing for the public’s help to find those responsible.

“Do you recognise any of the men in these photos?

“Please take a close look at these images and if you have any information then get in touch with us as soon as you can.”

Anyone with information should call police on 0161 856 8441 or 101, quoting incident number 56 of 29/10/2018, or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
