Reward of £25,000 over fake police bank raid in Glasgow

A £25,000 reward is being offered to catch three men who dressed as police officers to carry out an armed robbery at a bank in Glasgow city centre.

Police have issued CCTV footage and an e-fit image of one suspect behind the raid on the Natwest Bank in Blytheswood Square in 10 October last year.

The men threatened a security guard who was making a cash delivery with what appeared to be a firearm.

They fled in a silver E Class Mercedes-Benz on to the M8 motorway.

No firearm was discharged during the robbery and no-one was injured.

The suspects car was last seen heading down Blythswood Street and then turned right onto Waterloo Street before heading onto the westbound carriageway of the M8.

Det Insp Kate Jamieson, of Strathclyde Police, said: "As part of our on-going inquiries to trace those responsible for the robbery we are now releasing an e-fit of a man we would like to speak to.

"We are also releasing a CCTV image of 3 men, dressed as police officers who took part in the robbery.

"To assist the investigation, the British Bankers Association Reward scheme will pay a reward of up to £25,000 for information which leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible."

Det Insp Jamieson urged anyone with information, or who can identify those in the e-fit or CCTV image, to come forward.
