Till stolen from Milngavie store

Londis Craigash Road

Police are hunting two men who stole the till from a store in Milngavie in broad daylight.

The thieves targeted the Londis store in the town’s Craigash Road around 3.35pm on Thursday 5 September.

The pair burst into the shop and ripped the till – containing around £200 – from the counter before fleeing in a silver Honda Civic. They were then spotted jumping into a silver Vauxhall Astra at College Gate in Bearsden.

Both are white and around 5ft 8 to 10in tall. The first man was wearing brown and white trainers, a dark-coloured tracksuit, a blue Russian-style hat, grey gloves and a scarf covering his face. The second wore a blue long-sleeved Puma zip-up top, dark hat, grey and blue trainers and yellow workman’s gloves.

Speaking to the Milngavie Herald, store owner Anita Lindsay – who has run the shop and sub post office for 19 years along with her husband Hugh – said: “Thankfully nobody was injured in what was a very scary incident for the staff who were working.

“It’s the first time in 19 years that anything like this has happened, but luckily all the staff are trained in how to deal with incidents like this.

“We’ve no idea if they were intent on getting into the Post Office or not.”
