POLICE are today renewing their appeal for information about a robbery at Hacheston Post Office.

The robbery, in The Street, happened at around 1.30pm last Friday when a man entered the premises and pointed a carrier bag, which appeared to have something in it, at the man working behind the counter.

He then told him to put money into the bag and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash. As he left, he appeared to meet a second man outside.

Seconds later, a dark coloured BMW car, now believed to be an older-style five series model, was seen leaving the area. No one was hurt in the incident.
