Security thief makes bike getaway

A security guard making a delivery of cash to a store in Glasgow city centre was robbed by a thief who got away on a bicycle, police have said.

The robbery happened at about 07:30 at Tesco on Trongate.

A G4 security man was threatened and the robber made off with one of the money cassettes.

A nearby delivery driver gave chase and the thief, who was described as white and 20 to 30 years old, dropped the box before making off on the bike.

The suspect was wearing a light grey hooded jumper, dark grey woollen hat, dark grey jogging trousers and black or dark trainers.

Det Con Colin MacRitchie said: "Extensive enquiries are ongoing to gather more information on this robbery and the man responsible and officers are currently studying CCTV footage in an effort to identify the man responsible."
