STAFF were threatened as a post office during an armed robbery.

The incident happened at Best-One Shop and Post Office on St Margaret’s Drive, Rhyl, at about 10.25am on Wednesday, November 13.

A man wearing dark clothing entered the store and threatened the staff with a weapon before making off on foot with a quantity of cash, in the direction of St Margaret’s Drive.

Detective Inspector Elfyn Hughes said: “Those in the shop have been left shocked by the incident but thankfully no-one was injured.

"Our inquiries are ongoing and we are keen to hear from anyone who believes they have any information which may be relevant to the investigation.”

Robert Williams, who lives in St Margaret’s Drive, said: “A police officer knocked on my door and told me there had been a robbery in the post office down the road. She also asked whether I had any CCTV film of the robbery.

“It gave me quite a shock.”

A spokesman for the post office refused to comment.

North Wales Police are appealing to anyone who was in the vicinity of the store and saw a man acting suspiciously at the time, or who may have been driving past the location with a dashcam on board to contact police.

Anyone who may have any information relating to this incident, or who may have witnessed suspicious activity in the area, is urged to contact St Asaph CID on 101.
