Appeal following robbery at delivery depot in Liverpool
Main article content
We are appealing for information following a robbery at a Royal Mail depot in Liverpool on Friday 16 December.
At around 8.20am, we received a report that two males had entered the loading bay area of the depot, on Harrington Road, and approached a worker who was loading parcels into a delivery van.
The suspects, who were wearing black clothing with their faces covered, took a number of parcels from the vehicle before running to a silver Ford Transit van parked outside the depot.
The van, which was driven by a third man, has then left the area towards the city centre. It was later found abandoned at the junction of Sefton Street and Northumberland Street and the suspects were last seen making off along Northumberland Street.
Detectives have launched an investigation into the circumstances and are appealing for anyone who has information to come forward.
Residents living in the Harrington Road area are asked to check if their CCTV captured the robbery or the suspects driving away from the scene.
Detective Inspector Chris Saidi said: “We are urging anyone with information about this robbery to come forward to help our investigation.
“If anyone was in the vicinity of the depot at around 8.20am onwards and may have noticed something suspicious, please contact us.
"I am also appealing for drivers and residents in the surrounding areas who have CCTV and dashcam to please check your footage which may have captured the robbery and the van driving off.”
