The guard was returning to the van when they took two moneyboxes from him at gunpoint.

The robbers fled the scene on Broadway Road at about 07:30am in a white Toyota Conquest, with a red mark on the bonnet.

No shots were fired and no one was injured.

    This is one of many reasons why I've applied for a section 13 firearm licence, and plan to get plenty of training once I have it. One of the best ways in preventing crime is having a well prepared public consisting of citizens willing and able to protect themselves, in conjunction to an effective police force and laws backing you up.

      What is "WOLLA"???? Don't use French words if you don't know how to spell them or what they mean. The word is "VOILA" and is used to call attention to or express satisfaction with a thing shown or accomplished.
