TWO men made off with cash after an armed robbery at a Kinmel Bay shop last night (Monday).

Police are appealing for witnesses after the men entered Lifestyle Express on Towyn Road just before 8pm and left with a quantity of cash after demanding money from the till.

They are then believed to have travelled down Dinas Brown Avenue and one man was believed to be armed.

Detective Inspector Sion Williams said: “It is possible that people were passing the location at the time or may have seen the offenders head off down Dinas Avenue.

"I'd appeal to people that if they have any information that they feel is relevant to the inquiry to please contact us on 101 quoting reference number R016542.”"

The first man is described as being of large build, tall and wearing jeans with a hooded top, with the second man described as being of medium build, also wearing jeans and a hooded top.

Police attended the scene with a member of the dog section and a helicopter was also deployed to the area but the search for the two individuals proved unsuccessful.

DI Williams said: “Robbery is a very serious offence and we treat all such incidents extremely seriously. Our inquiries are well underway and House to house inquires have been undertaken and are continuing.”
