Haverfordwest robbery: Thomson travel agent raider takes cash

Police are investigating after a man made off with a substantial amount of money in a raid on a travel agent in Pembrokeshire.

The man entered Thomsons at Riverside Quay, Haverfordwest, on Friday and threatened staff and customers before taking cash including foreign currency.

Dyfed-Powys Police say no-one was injured in the raid.

The thief is said to be in his late 20s or early 30s, with cropped dark hair and is up to 5ft 8ins (1.72m) tall.

He is also described as being of stocky build, wearing a light blue top, light blue jeans and white trainers and possibly a dark coloured jacket.

Police said he had a Welsh accent and was carrying a plastic carrier bag. Officers added that he might have had a black sports-type holdall with a shoulder strap.

It is understood the man got into a taxi near a cafe by the bus station in Haverfordwest after the raid at 16:15 BST, and was dropped off on the outskirts of the town in Bethany Row, on the main A40, near a Toyota garage.

People who witnessed the incident or saw anything suspicious before or after are also asked to contact police on 101.
