Arrest over armed robbery

A MAN has been arrested in connection with an armed robbery at Tesco, Hilltop.

Police officers arrested a 25-year-old last Wednesday in connection with the robbery, where a courier filling up the cashpoint was shot in the leg by robbers.

A G4S security guard was approached by three men with their faces covered and shot in the leg as he filled up the supermarket cashpoint back in July. They left empty handed.

A £10,000 reward was offered for an arrest and conviction, and after police had still not made any arrests in September, they issued pictures of clothing found in a suspected getaway car.

The man from Nottingham was arrested on suspicion of armed robbery, and suspicion of burglary, relating to the alleged theft of an Audi car from a house in Arnold in July.

He has been questioned and bailed.
