Man, 55, arrested over security guards raid in Stewarton

A 55-year-old man has been arrested in connection with an armed robbery on security guards in East Ayrshire.

The incident, at about 07:00 on 4 May, saw two guards threatened by a man with a knife outside Sainsbury's supermarket on Rigg Street, Stewarton.

The guards handed over a five-figure sum of cash before the suspect made off in a silver Ford Focus car in the direction of Laneshaw Street.

The man arrested is expected to appear at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court on Monday.
