ARMED robbers made off with cash in a night time raid on a convenience store.

Three masked men with weapons entered the Co-operative Food store on Queen Street, Leeswood, near Mold on Sunday just before 10pm.

The men entered the store just before closing time and confronted the two staff members who were on duty, demanding money from the till.

The trio left the area some time later with a quantity of cash in a blue vehicle, thought to be similar to a Ford Mondeo, with the partial registration plate MV04.

Nobody was hurt during the raid on Easter Sunday.

The Co-operative Group, who operate the food store, were unavailable for comment yesterday.

North Wales Police Chief Inspector Jeff Moses said that police were also investigating a report of a number of vehicles that have had their number plates interfered with at the Druid Inn pub in Pontblyddyn and are keeping an “open mind” as to any links with the vehicle used during the raid in Leeswood.

Chief Inspector Moses added that police are appealing for witnesses following the armed robbery and those who may have been in the area and saw something can contact North Wales Police on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
