    Investigators have released CCTV visuals of suspects in relation to a robbery at a forecourt store in Temple Cloud last week.

    Police were called to the business, located on the Main Road of the Chew Valley village in Somerset, shortly before 9pm on 18 September.

    Two men were reported to have entered the store carrying weapons and made off with a quantity of cash in a grey Post Office bag. A third man was stood outside the shop at the time. The trio then ran off on foot in the direction of Paulmont Rise, where police suspect they got into a vehicle and left the area.

    Neither staff nor the one customer in the store at the time were injured.

    CCTV enquiries show three men, described as follows:

    • Male 1 – white and of slim or medium build. He is wearing a black Nike tracksuit top with white stripe and Nike logo on upper arms, black Nike tracksuit bottoms, with white stripe and Nike tick on left thigh, as well as black trainers, balaclava and gloves.
    • Male 2 – white, medium build, dark hair and sideburns. He is seen wearing a black North Face jacket, North Face hat, blue jeans and black trainers with white soles.
    • Male 3 – white, slim or medium build, and wearing a dark cap, black Puma hoodie jumper, dark trousers, light blue trainers and black gloves.

     “In this robbery, people were threatened and we take that extremely seriously. Fortunately, nobody was physically harmed, but we have made sure those innocent people in the store at the time have access to any support services they feel they’d benefit from,” Detective Sergeant Ricky Norman, of Avon and Somerset Polic, said.

    “The local neighbourhood team has been made aware of the robbery and additional high-visibility patrols are being carried out.”

    DS Norman added: “We appreciate the CCTV does not provide clear facial images, but hope someone may recognise one of these individuals, either by the clothing or by having seen them that same day.

    “CCTV and house-to-house enquiries have already been started, but anyone who has not yet spoken to us and has footage showing these people, including possibly relevant dashcam, is asked to share it with us.”

    Anyone who can help the investigation is asked to call 101 and quote reference number 5223227804. They can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

    No personal details are taken, information cannot be traced or recorded and you will not go to court or have to speak to police when contacting Crimestoppers.
